This Church 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, but we understand it was closed in 1978, and the premises are now in secular use.

St Bartholomew's Church is now derelict. It has been sold by the Diocese to a private owner, but is still believed to be waiting conversion, as unfortunately, the new owner has been unable to obtain permission to cross nearby farmland.

It is of Norman foundation, but the design we see today dates from the mid 19th century, and is the work of S.S. Teulon. Of particular interest are the stone-carved heads of kings and queens terminating the mouldings over window arches on the exterior (noted by Allan Taylor on his "Genealogy of the Cotswold & Surrounds" website, which appears to be no longer online).

It does however retain Grade II Listed Building - see the British Listed Buildings website for details. At the time of their survey the interior was said to be inaccessible, but "reputed to have reredos, choir stalls with poppy-head finials and tiles, by Teulon". This was according to an account provided by Buildings of England: Gloucestershire (the Cotswolds, David Verey, 1979). Sadly, however, it seems probable that in more recent years, these internal fittings have been lost.


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.
