St James the greater church Parish church. Early C14 with C15 west tower and clerestorey; was restored in 1840 and presented with a number of stained glass panels that had originally come from Sainte-Chapelle in Paris, Saint-Denis near Paris, Le Mans cathedral, and Saint-Julien-du-Sault in Burgundy.

The church was restored in the 1840s and contains architectural memorials to Lord Howe, who sponsored the restoration, and early Victorian armourial stained glass by Thomas Willement, showing the arms of Queen Adelaide with the 21 German States. On the south side is a large window with the arms of the Curzon family as a central piece.

We hold a monthly Holy Communion Service on the third Sunday of the month at 9.30am and other occasional services. Please see our 'Services and events' page for the latest information. There are kitchen and toilet facilities and the Church can be opened by arrangement with a key holder.
