A little tucked away (you actually have to walk into St. Bart’s hospital to get to the front door) is the church of St. Bartholemew the Less.

There’s also a large rubbing of what I think is a gravestone or a tomb but has no explanation attached to it.

So if you want a bit of peace and quiet, why not have a look? W
