St. James` Church (Hemingford Grey)

St. James`s Church is the parish church of the delightful riverside village of Hemingford Grey in Huntingdonshire, now part of Cambridgeshire.

The church stands among water meadows beside the River Great Ouse. Next door is Hemingford Grey House, a William and Mary building which was formerly the vicarage but is now a conference centre.

It dates back in part to the 13th century, and the chancel is 12th century. The tower had a spire, but this is now truncated, the rest having been blown away in a hurricane in 1741.

There are Norman arches in the nave arcades, and in the chancel is a double piscina.

An oriental plane tree in the churchyard is said to be one of the largest in England.
