St Bartholomew Church

St Bartholomew's gatehouse that leads to the oldest parish church in London - St Bartholomew-the-Great - was built in the sixteenth century and is where Queen Mary ate chicken and drank red wine while watching Protestant martyrs burn at the stake. It was only when a first World War German Zeppelin bomb in 1916 fell nearby that the tiles to this arch fell off to reveal this Elizabethan half timber fronted house built in 1597. Rear view of the Elizabethan gate house.

St Bartholomew The Great - this is the [reverse side of the] Tudor gatehouse to the priory church, which leads onto West Smithfield. The stone arch is all that remains of the former entrance to the Western façade, destroyed in 1539 during the dissolution of the monasteries. The Tudor half-timber frame was added in 1559. If you do visit, Club Gascon/Cellar Gascon (food), are just through the arch & The Jerusalem Tavern & Ye Olde Mitre (drink) a short wander away. EC1, Barbican Tube.
