Plaque: St Bartholomew's Gatehouse
Erection date: 1932
This gatehouse was restored in 1932 to the use of the church in memory of the two brothers, Sir Aston Webb RA and Ed. Alfred Webb FSA, also of Frederick L. Dove DL FSA who worked together on the restoration of the fabric of the church for over 40 years.
This delightful plaque has a crest at each end. The open gate rather spoils the picture.

EC1, West Smithfield, St Bartholomew's
The restoration of this church was the first major work by Aston Webb. His brother, Edward, being churchwarden at the time was probably just coincidence, don't you think?
In the 1940s this gatehouse served as a, very small, Rectory for the church.
