The redbrick church of St. Bartholomew at Church Minshull is the third on this site. It was built between 1702 to 1704 in the reign of Queen Anne in the classical style with a stone portico over the porch.

The inscription beneath the fine carved armourial bearing in the picture reads:

Near this place lye Interred the Bodys of Thomas Minshull late of Eardswick in the County of Cheshire, Esq. and Alice his Wife who was Daughter of James Trollope of Thirlby in the County of Lincoln, Esq. They left two Sons and five Daughters. This Monument is Erected by their three Surviving Daughters in Dutifull Remembrance of Parents upright and just in all their ways; both they and their Children Suffered great wrongs by unjust People. He was Loyal to his King and true to his Country. His Mother was Sister to Sir Edward (or Edmund) Fytton of Gawsworth in Cheshre: who Suffered for King Charles the first of Blessed Memory.
