Following a swim at Grain beach the other day (it was just about warm enough!), I decided to have a look around St. James' Church. In a peaceful corner of the village, at the end of the High Street, the Church is a short walk from the beach. Dating back to the 12th century, the Church has undergone extensive building and restoration work over the years. The tower, although Norman in appearance, was part of a re-building and restoration programme in 1904/05.
