The Anglican Church of St Bartholomew in Cranmore, Somerset, England, dates from the 15th century and has been designated as a Grade I listed building.[1]

The chancel was rebuilt in 1848 in a perpendicular early English style. It has a three-stage embattled tower, supported by buttresses with corner pinnacles, tracery and gargoyles. There is a stone fan vault under the tower.[1]

The interior of the church includes wall monuments, particularly to the Strode family,[1] and Chetham family of Southill House.[2] There is a funeral bier dating from 1597.[3]

The church falls within the benefice of St Peter and St Paul, Shepton Mallet which also includes St Aldhelm, Doulting,[4] which is part of the archdeconry of Wells.[5]
