St James's church at Brassington in Derbyshire

St James church is situated high above the main village at Brassington overlooking it's narrow streets and fine old buildings. It is essentially a Norman church with a fine south arcade of 3 bays, south chancel aisle of 2 bays, a later north aisle, and a Norman tower. The south porch is 13th century as proved by it's outer doorway. Some windows are Perp. The North aisle was added by F.J Robinson in 1879-81.

Inside the tower west wall is a crude figure of a man with his hand on his heart.
