One of the finest churches in Telford, St James consists of 3 main parts that reflect its life over more than 800 years.
The stone built chancel with its impressive arch dates from the late 12th Century, the nave and West Tower is 18th Century and the brick built North Isle was added in the 19th Century.
The most significant memorials in the graveyard belong to the Botfield family who were the leading local industrialists in the area during the 1800s and patrons of the church. The church was decommissioned in 1975.
