About this image
St James' Church was opened on Standard Hill, on the edge of The Park, in 1808. It was an extra-parochial church (i.e. outside any of the old parishes) and although most of the Park residents worshipped there, many also went to St Peter's. When St James' Church closed in 1933 the congregation joined St Peter's, and most of The Park came into the combined parish of St Peter and St James. St James's was demolished a few years later in 1936; some monuments from St James's are now preserved in St Peter's Church.
