A small parish church of 15thC origin - the tower and west wall being of that period and forming the oldest standing part of the medieval hospital of St Bartholomew. The nave was rebuilt in the 18thC and 19thC. The hospital is its own parish, therefore St Bartholomew the Less is, uniquely, a hospital parish church (made such by the letters patent of Henry VIII in 1547). It also features 1950s' stained glass windows to doctors and nurses.
