Botley’s old church

church

Up until 1836, the 13th century Norman Church was the main church for the Hampshire village of Botley. The village grew and moved to the north, the church was no longer large enough for the congregation. Originally called All Saints, it was rededicated to St Bartholomew when the new church of All Saints was built in the western part of the village.  At the end of the 18th century, a tree damaged  part of the Old Church and instead of rebuilding, the damaged part was removed and a new end wall constructed.
