The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Canterbury, of the value of £96, in the patronage of the Rev. G. Simpson, vicar. The church is dedicated to St. Bartholomew. It is an ancient building, with a tower and spire, and contains a piscina, two monumental brasses (one being canopied), and tombs of the Savages and Tuftons. Titus Oates was once rector of Bobbing.
