Church of St James, Norton, Norton Juxta Kempsey - Wychavon

Rural parish church. The nave and chancel are Norman, the lower parts of the west tower are C14. Restored in 1874-75 with a modern church hall added on the north side. The lias stonework on the south west diagonal buttress of the tower has fallen and further stone falls present a danger to the public. A National Lottery Heritage Fund Grant for Places of Worship was awarded in 2017 and repairs will soon be underway.
