Description:A postcard view of St. James Church which was originally built in 1212. The tower dates from the late 13th century and the small recessed spire was added in 1562. It was enlarged and rebuilt in 1869 under the direction of G.E. Street, the architect being Andrew Capper. The main additions were a combined vestry and organ chamber on the north side and a new south porch. The church was re-opened after restoration in 1870 having been closed for 44 years.
