History
The Church that stands today is The Church of St Bartholomew. This is a small 18th century, Grade II listed, Georgian stone and red brick church. Built in 1742 the church has seen major alterations and an extension in the late 19th century. On the same site stands the refurbished Grade II* listed Longdon-Upon-Tern village hall, formerly a schoolhouse provided by the Duke of Sutherland and opened in 1849; a decline in population meant the school closed in 1970.

The west gallery was refurbished in 2010 and can now be used for musical events. The church has excellent acoustics.

The aqueduct over the River Tern, not far from the church, is the oldest surviving cast iron aqueduct in the world. Begun in 1794 by Josiah Clowes, it was completed by Thomas Telford in 1796.
