St James' Church, Christleton
St James' Church, Christleton
The church's origins are Saxon and Cristetone is mentioned in the Domesday Book, suggesting the existence of a Christian settlement and evidence that a church has been on the site since Norman times. The original church, probably constructed of wood, was re-built in stone about 1490, the tower of which was used as look-out post during the Civil War (1644-1646) when both church and village suffered considerable damage. The church was later rebuilt, retaining the original tower, the red sandstone for the nave being sourced from the Duke of Westminster's Waverton quarry to match the original tower.
