St  Bartholomew's Church - reredos
St Bartholomew's Church - reredos
The existence of an active and productive (East) Ogwell quarry SX8570 : Tower of St Mary's Church Wolborough in the area in Victorian times, probably gave rise to the creation of this wonderful reredos. Built with all the skill the masons possessed and with the local natural "Devonshire Marble", the marble columns and the inserted marble panels are set in what appears to be Beer stone from the quarries just outside the east Devon coastal village of Beer.

There are other examples in the church of the use of marble from the South Devon area ... it is worth looking around to see what can be found, but none so wonderful as the marble in the reredos at St. Bartholomew's Church at East Ogwell.
