The medieval church of St Bartholomew's underwent major restoration between 1840-1871. Further work was done in the 20th century, including reslating of the steeple, retiling the nave roof, the plaster ceiling renewed and the walls recoloured.

For 20th century views of the church, with all the pews in place, see the "Englands Places" website of Historic England (photos 1, 2, 3)

In 2004 a major refurbishment of the nave, the tower and external drainage was undertaken, as shown in the pictures below.
Further pictures are on display in an album in the church.
