Church of St James, Cherhill
Church of St James, Cherhill
The church's origins lie as far back as the 1300s but over the years it has been extended and restored. The south porch and aisle were added in the 15th century as was the tower. The subtle differences in roofing materials and roof line on the main roof indicate where the nave joins the chancel.
The Church of St James, The Street, Cherhill, Wiltshire
Written by Brian Robert Marshall

The origins of the church are 12th or 13th century. However, as is invariably the case with churches of this age it has been altered, repaired and restored over the succeeding decades and centuries. The building as seen today is mostly 15th century. The tower and south porch date to that time. More recently the church was restored in 1853 by S.B. Gabriel of Bristol. The church has been listed Grade II* since 1960 LinkExternal link
