St Bartholomew’s Church is located in the parish of Churchdown, Gloucester. St Bartholomew’s Church is located on ancient Christian site near the peak of Churchdown hill.
St Bartholomew’s Church is still used for worship most Sundays and on other occasions. The Church has its origins in Norman times, about 1175, but the site itself is believed to have had earlier Christian and pre-Christian uses. The Church is a Grade I listed building with many old and interesting features. The beautiful north porch lies beneath an unusual ‘Priest’s Room’, the Font is believed to originate from the 14th century and the pulpit, installed in 1631, is one of the Church’s treasures.
