Westhide, St Bartholomew's Church
Westhide, St Bartholomew's Church
A very striking country church composed of a squat and stolid west tower and a nave, chance, and south aisle. The oldest part of the church is the tower, which dates to the Norman period - probably 12th century. This is a very low structure topped with a pyramidal roof. The chance arch and nave arcade are styled in 14th century Decorated Gothic.
In the 14th century side aisle is a tomb and effigy thought to be that of the church founder. Westhide church is Grade I listed.
