St James's Church, North Newnton

Recent Photograph of St James's Church (North Newnton)

A church situated on the edge of its village, overlooking the river and a weir. Here is the most bizarre west tower, which has beams from the bellframe piercing the walls to the outside, and these wooden beams are capped by stone ?buttresses, the weight of the stone stopping the belfry dropping into the church below.

This exterior view overlooks the River Avon.
