The Grade I parish church of St Bartholomew in Fingest, taken in 2003, is an Early English stone building, noted for its massive 18-metre high Norman tower at the west end. It dates from the early 12th century and dominates the rest of the church. Its 1.2 metres thick walls make it wider than the present nave. The uppermost of the three storeys contains the remaining bell from the original peal. The distinctive doubled-gabled roof dates from the 14th century.
