SO9851 : St. James's Church, Bishampton

taken 17 years ago, near to Bishampton, Worcestershire, Great Britain

St. James's Church, Bishampton.
St. James's Church, Bishampton.
Originally built in Norman times the first recorded Vicar of Bishampton was Thomas de Pippard and full list of vicars from that time exists in the Church. The church was once a chapelry of Fladbury and at that time was dedicated to St. Peter. However, during rebuilding in 1870 the figure carved for the pulpit proved to be St James and not St. Peter. It proved easier to rededicate the Church to St James than to remake the pulpit!
