In the window nearest to the pulpit is a panel of glass painted by the late Michael Lassen commemorating the church’s 700th anniversary; it was donated by Joan Derrick, a local singer.

It is said that St James the Great church was consecrated by the bishop of Worcester on 16th April 1304.

This image is now used as the logo of the Friends of St James - it was fortuitously taken showing the sun shining through trees behind.
