Chipping, St Bartholomew's Church
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The medieval church was substantially rebuilt in 1506 with sandstone rubble, beneath a slate roof. The church consists of a nave, chancel, two aisles, south porch, and west tower.
During restoration work in 1872 a Saxon basin was discovered, measuring about 2 feet high and 18 inches wide. This basin may have been used as a font; it is undecorated save for a pair of lines at the brim about 2 inches apart. The only other real point of historical interest is a Henry Wills organ, made in 1876.
As of this writing, the church is normally open afternoons except Monday.
