St James’s Church, which is set in the centre of the civil burial ground for the rural Parish of Hutton-in-the-Forest, is situated next to Parkland ¼ mile North of Hutton-in-the-Forest. In essence it is a traditional Anglican church which extends its welcome both to local people and visitors to the area and is available for baptisms, weddings and funerals. A key can be got from Hutton in the Forest when the House is open (see www.hutton-in-the-forest.co.uk).
