Repairs and development at St James'

25 Jan 2021, 4 p.m.
After several years of planning and fundraising, urgent repairs to the tower roof and Lady Chapel floor have now been completed. We also took the opportunity to upgrade the kitchen facilities and do some re-ordering to encourage additional community use of the building, and this is finished too. Our architect signed off the final certificate in December 2020 at the end of the defects retention period.

We do hope that you will come to visit us once the current restrictions have been lifted. We have produced a series of leaflets that will tell you more about the church and its heritage, but to comply with COVID-19 restrictions these are not available in the church at the moment. For those with family connections planning research, our website now has a searchable database that will enable you to locate a grave. If you can't get to us, our website offers a virtual tour in the comfort of your own home. 

The work was funded by a number of grants, the largest of which was from the National Lottery Heritage Fund. Our thanks go to all of the National Lottery players who made this possible.
