Details

1. 5111 TONG LANE (north-west side) Tong Church of St James SE 2130 61/110 4.9.52

I GV

2. Built in 1727 by Sir George Tempest close to the Hall, St James's incorporates in its tower remains of the medieval parish church including a partially concealed Norman window and the tracery of a Perpendicular one. The church is however quite classical in design and appearance with a plain rectangular nave with slightly narrower chancel and square tower at west end with quoin pilasters cornice and parapet with carved urns surmounting 4 corners. The structure is of local coursed gritstone with large quoins and broad squared window surrounds. Tall plain round-headed windows with impost blocks and keystones. The doorway arch moulded and with intersecting glazing pattern to fanlight. The windows retain small leaded panes of greenish hue. Stone slate roofs with coping stones. The interior is virtually unaltered and therefore a rare survival. The double chamfered arches of the north arcade may be re-used, medieval work. Tuscan column arcade, band vaulted ceiling. All furnishings intact with west gallery, box pews, squire and parson's pews, 3 decker pulpit and communion rail. Important example of estate church closely related to the Hall.
