The sheer size of this building is extremely impressive. It is 52m (170ft) long, 18m (59ft) wide and the roof is an astonishing 44m (144ft) high - the tallest of any parish church in the British Isles. The absence of side-aisles and chancel further enhances the experience of height.

It was built by Father Arthur Wagner, a wealthy 'Anglo- Catholic' and curate of St. Paul's church in nearby West Street. The foundation stone was laid in February 1872, and the first service was held around two and a half years later. The design is by Edmund Scott and it is built mainly of brick. The interior is in Italianate 'Venetian' style. Henry Wilson designed the magnificent Art Nouveau-style Sanctuary - with its ornate marble work and enormous candlesticks - in 1895.

St. Bartholomew's is a high church (in more ways than one) and the building regularly hosts top-class classical music concerts.

Special thanks to Rev. Michael Wells, Delia and John Spink.
