St. Nicholas at Barton-le-Clay is a very typical Bedfordshire church. Largely dating to the 13th Century it has that distinctive chequerboard pattern which is common throughout the south of the county and is in many ways the signature of Bedfordshire’s ecclesiastical architecture.
Otherwise, the history of the church is not unusual. In the 14th Century the tower was added and many of the interior work dates from the 14th-16th Centuries. A couple of hundred years of subsequent neglect was corrected during the late Victorian period with the usual round of restoration and renovation.
