Search St Bartholomew's Church:

One of the oldest churches in Leicestershire and the Norman arcade which separates the nave from the north aisle dates from 1081, these beautiful piers and arches have some crosses cut into the stone when the Norman building was consecrated. Above one arch is a filled in window which was originally part of the Saxon building that stood before the building was adapted by the Normans.

The church consists of a west tower, nave, small north aisle and chancel. The Victorians restored the church in 1874, but thankfully kept to the original fabric and made little building alterations. The western half of the tower collapsed in the 18th century and was rebuilt narrower and to a lesser height in 1830.
