As Dovorian, I too was in the choir during the time of DHP Priest and also Rev Charles Buck. I became a server and agree that St Bart's was rather high church.
I recognize at least two faces in the Blessing of the Sea picture.
I also remember standing outside during one sermon and watching the Bristol Brabazon circling above Dover. That was the largest aircraft in the world at that time.
Having left Dover in 1956 I was saddened to hear later that St Bart's had been demolished.

I can vouch for the screen being in place and the metal gateway during the 50s, also the location of the hymn boards.

The sepia picture that I posted is no later than 1930. It came from a relative whose family lived in Templar Street. I will try and find out when it was taken.

Keniff-

If  you compare your interior photo with the one I put on,  yours has got a screen and an ornate cross over the aisle, and pictures on the wall.  Question is - which came first.
Believe this church at one time was very 'high' and some people complained about this.

One would think that the sepia photo (yours) was the oldest but was that in fact the case?

Another picture of St Barts - unsure when this one was taken

Dovorian -
It is indeed a 'labour of love' cleaning a church.

From The Buildings of England, North-East and East Kent:

ST BARTHOLOMEW, Templar Street. Designed by Joseph Clarke in 1866, consecrated in 1879. Polygonal apse up above the London Road. Short transepts with chapels. Clerestoried nave and low aisles. E.E. style. Frenchy foliage capitals. Flint outside, ashlar and rendered walls inside. A dead-pan description is all such a church deserves. – STAINED GLASS. 1887, by Kempe, in the S aisle.

Oh dear. :(

Lovely pictures, thanks Ellenkate, they bring back many happy memories.
My mum used to polish the aisles and all those chairs every week.
Regards, Bert.

Hi Keniff,
Yes, you can just about spot the tidal harbour of the fish market on the right in the picture.
Regards, Bert.
I do have some more images from inside St Barts - a lot of my wife's family were married there, living in Templar St made it the "local" church !!
