Administrative/Biographical history:

The church of Saint Bartholomew was constructed in 1841 and consectrated in 1844. The building was built in an Early English style, designed by William Railton. A district was assigned in 1844, taken from part of the parish of Saint Matthew. The patron was the Corporation of London. The church ran various associations and missionary activities, including preaching from a pulpit attached to the exterior of the church. The church was damaged during the Second World War and services were held in the hall until the church could be reopened in 1955. In 1978 the parish was merged with Saint John's (P72/JN) and Saint Simon Zelotes (P72/SIM), and the church was closed and converted into flats.
