For this church:
Nottingham St Bartholomew
Features and Fittings
With only a couple of photographs of the interior of St Bartholomew’s it is difficult to describe the fittings and fixtures. Some idea may however be formulated by using the church records which list various items donated to the church mainly as memorial gifts. This list therefore also serves as a record of many of the memorials within the church.
Donated by William Tower in 1902. A photograph shows the altar completely covered by a frontal cloth and backed by three panels, possibly also fabric covered. On either side of the altar wood panelling about four feet high extends to the north and south walls.
