The Perpendicular ironstone tower of St Bartholomew’s dates from the 14th century.

Nave and chancel have been much restored, most notably in the early 20th century, but the church still has a 13th century south arcade.

This memorial bust of Alice South is in the north aisle.  Hands clasped in prayer, she wears  a ruff and has a cowled head.

The Souths once held the manor of Keelby.

The inscription below the bust reads:
Here lies Alice South whose life had weathered sixty winters when it ceased its lingering course.  Though wooed by the flower of youth and a troop of nobles, she remained for fourteen years in lonely widowhood, out of affection for her children, to whom, rejecting a second marriage, she made over ere death took her, her fortune unimpaired - all her fortune, that is, save what had been devoured by the parasite and wretched crowd of suitors who haunted her hospitable walls. Happy children to whom but for her request would have fallen sorrow and sighing in place of ease she bequeathed to them. 'Husband take and keep me in the tomb' were her dying words, then passed into the funeral urn the ashes of a thus dutiful wife. Died 3 May 1605
