St. James the Great, Idridgehay

August 8, 2014

St, James the Great, Idridgehay

DSCF9142A distinctive building with a lovely steeple that can be seen for some miles. St. James was built in 1854 – 55 by H.I Stevens. It is open each day. The sign outside only mentions Sunday services.


Inside I found another very well kept church. There is a book drop – ie swap a book for one there which is a great idea. A guide booklet, some prayer cards and some very nice ‘Alleluia, He is Risen’ cards, which looked hand made (and very well). There is a votive stand, a simple one using a tray of sand and tea lights – nothing wrong with that. The toilet wasn’t locked up either, which often seems to happen. 3 people in the visitors book.

DSCF9144Not a special church but a lovely one. I rate it as OK for this study. There doesn’t seem to be a website.
