I regularly walk past St Bartholomew and it is in our HODs festival programme again this year, but I rarely see this side. The usual view is of the front. If you fancy having a peek at the front here’s an earlier post, and if you want to see inside why not visit in September when the HODs festival is on!
St Bartholomew was the lay people’s church of Hyde Abbey, and for years it was believed that it was here the remains of Alfred the Great were moved following the dissolution of Hyde Abbey. However no trace of them have been found; it is more likely they remain strewn somewhere in Hyde or possibly in a box in the museum!
