St James' Church, Swarkestone
St James' Church, Swarkestone
St Jamesí Church was possibly built as a daughter chapel for the Knights Hospitallers of St John, at Barrow in the mid 12th century, or some years earlier by a manorial lord. Most of the original Norman church was lost when it was rebuilt in 1876 but the Harpur Chapel, built before 1577, remains little altered as does the 14th century tower save for the loss of its corner pinnacles (LinkExternal link - Conservation Area Histories: Swarkestone District of South Derbyshire).

The church is grade II*-listed by English Heritage (English Heritage Building ID: 83223 LinkExternal link British Listed Buildings)
