Cemeteries

This Church has (or had) a graveyard.

Note: any church within an urban environment may have had its graveyard closed after the Burial Act of 1853. Any new church built after that is unlikely to have had a graveyard at all.

Church History

This Place of Worship was founded in the 12th century, and we understand it is still open.

St Andrew & St Bartholomew's Church is a Listed Building - see British Listed Buildings website for details.

The following information about the Church has been provided to accompany the photographs on the right. A list of people who have supplied the information is included in the Acknowledgements, below.

[Image 1] Off the photograph to the right, a Tithe Barn was heavily encased in scaffolding, and was in in the process of restoration. As this photograph was taken in 2001, the work is finished now. The Court stands to the left of the Church.[1]

[Image 2] This church was again flooded in July 2007, and the complete interior was bereaved of fixtures and fittings. Here we see it in the process of being dried out by blow heaters. There were many stones in the churchyard, to the south of the church, which were inaccessible due to the aftermath of the flooding.[2]

[Image 3] The Church, and its Tithe Barn were originally part of a group of monastic buildings, belonging to the Augustian Friars in Bristol.[1]

[Image 4] The church was in the process of being dried out by blow heaters following the aftermath of severe flooding when this photograph was taken in 2007. All the internal fixtures and fittings were removed, but thankfully the wall hanging - a painting on wood of a Royal Coat of Arms, at the west end of the south aisle, extending from the top of the screen to the roof, appears to have remained safe. According to Arthur Mee's Gloucestershire, it is that of Edward VI, and the earliest of its kind in the land.

The British Listed Buildings website agrees it is an early example, but says the Coat of Arms is of Elizabeth I.[1]

[Image 5] Herringbone masonry indicates this wall of St Andrew's Church is very old, being apparently a feature of late Saxon churches in this region - q.v. the ruined Edvin Loach, Old St Giles's Church in Herefordshire.[1]

Denomination

Now or formerly Church of England.

If more than one congregation has worshipped here, or its congregation has united with others, in most cases this will record its original dedication.
