St James Church

With the floodlights now working again outside the local village church, I went down to the churchyard to take some long exposure shots.

The church tower dates back to the 12th century, with the (leaning) spire added on around 1310. The rest of the church meanwhile was rebuilt later on in the 15th and 16th centuries.

More information about the church and its events can be found on their website.
