Brief Description

An attractive little church with a saddleback tower and Norman doorway on the Northamptonshire border.

  • Main Description

    Entering through the plain Norman doorway you see three low round , ironstone arches, which were added to the Norman nave in about 1200 to create a north aisle.

    During the following century the aisle was extended eastwards in Early English style to form a chapel.

    A severe Victorian restoration of the chancel has only slightly diminished St James's medieval charm.
