St James

 

St James’ church is in the centre of Burton Lazars, where it has stood for over 900 years. Grade I listed, it has many significant architectural features including a 600 year old font, a roof dating to the late medieval period with beautifully carved wooden bosses in the form of minstrels, and stunning stained glass windows reflecting its connection to the Order of St Lazarus. The Order ran a leper hospital from the twelfth century to the Reformation.

The project will install toilet facilities for the first time; create a kitchen area from which to serve food and drink; build a meeting room; install a new heating system; and rewire the electricity and lighting systems.
