Old Sapey: St Bartholomew

St Bartholomew, Lower Sapey

St Bartholomew, Lower Sapey

Lower Sapey is a split parish with a deep valley in the middle where the old church still stands. This church is on a site which contains Saxon burials. In the 19th Century however, the population at the centre of the parish had dwindled so much that a new church (also called St Bartholomew’s) was built up in the hamlet of Harpley, and this is where regular services are held. (The old church remains open for walkers and is valued by many for its peaceful and prayerful atmosphere).
