Back to St Bartholomews

By Kate Shilling — 13th April 2018

One of Western Sydney’s oldest churches and cemeteries is opening to the public for its annual  Back to St Bartholomews event this weekend.

Sally stumbled on this place in the summer whilst searching for her Huguenot ancestors, and  we’re looking forward to checking  it out properly on Saturday, 14April.

Set high on a hill, wedged snugly between the M4 and the Great Western Highway at Prospect; at 177 years old, St Bartholomews looks to be a fascinating window into the past - when traffic in Prospect was a completely different proposition.


There’s more where this came from! The Australian Heritage Festival kicks off next week.  With events around the country scheduled well into May, there’ll definitely be something on near you – something that could help you solve a family history mystery.
