St James Church

St James Church

The parish church has the tallest spire (295 feet) of any medieval parish church in the country. It is a magnificent fifteenth century building that is featured in Sir Simon Jenkin’s book, England’s 1000 Best Churches.
Visitors are welcomed by Church guides, a shop and the possibility of refreshments served under the tower. St Stephen’s chapel is set aside for reflection and prayer with aids to contemplation and prayer available there.

Of Particular Note is the tower which one can climb for £1 the view is fantastic and is a photographers dream. caution is needed though as the steps are steep and uneven and they go on and on and on …..
