Visit St Bartholomew-the-Less

An interesting little church just inside the walls of St Bartholomew's Hospital, it is St Bartholomew-the-Less, rather than its more famous brother around the corner, that is the official church of St Bartholomew's Hospital.

We are told that a chapel was recorded on this site as early as 1184, and with the oldest remaining part of the modern church is a tower dating from the 15th century, containing bells dated to 1380 and 1420.

The rest of the church is laid out on an 18th century octagonal design, and thought it is officially of Church of England space, it also holds Roman Catholic Masses, and when your author dropped in earlier in the week one was just coming to an end.
