St Bartholomew's Church, Much Marcle

Recent Photograph of St Bartholomew's Church (Much Marcle)

St Bartholmew's Church was planned as the final stop of the day, not my first visit, nor probably my last. Early English nave and aisles of four bays, south porch, then oddly the central tower with no transepts, and 14th century chancel with two-bayed north chapel. The tower is late Perpendicular and an obvious replacement. The area around the tower is unsatisfactory, plain walling at the east end of the aisle, a classical SW doorway to the chancel. Did the former tower fall?
