Churches (90) : St James, Hartlebury

The Church of St James in the Worcestershire village of Hartlebury dates back to around 1300CE (though a church may have been on the site from Saxon times). Only fragments from the church's earliest days remain. Most of the current structure was built in 1836-7 though the West tower is from 1587CE, though the porch is a later addition. 

The church has a nave with North and South aisles, a chancel (from 1825) and North and South chapels. The church is built from sandstone ashlar from nearby quarries.
