St. Bartholomew`s Church (Brighton)

St. Bartholomew`s Church is an interesting 19th century church at Brighton.

It is situated in Ann Streert.

St. Bartholomew`s was provided to the town by Father Arthur Wagner, the son of the Vicar of Brighton. A colourful character, he was himself ordained, accused of Popery, called to appear before the ecclesiastical court and even physically assaulted. He also personally paid for five new churches.

St. Bartholomew`s was designed by Edmund Scott, a Brighton man, under Wagner`s instructions, and built between 1872 and 1874.

The enormous nave is the highest of any parish church in England, being 135 feet from floor to ceiling.

There is a fine sanctuary added in 1895 by Henry Wilson, the Arts and Crafts designer.
