We are pleased that you have located our website.

St James the Elder is a lovely country Church, with a warm welcome to all visitors and is on the outskirts of Horton adjacent to Horton Court. This is a site of national interest and which has been used for filming the BBC serial “Wolf Hall”, “Poldark” and ‘The Living and The Dead’.

Horton is a village at the south end of the Cotswolds on the route of the Cotswold Way and is surrounded by beautiful country. The Church is located immediately adjacent to the “the Cotswold Way” and is open every day for visitors and walkers and we would invite you to look around.

The church is a dynamic group of people who enjoy the community focus and are proud of their identity and historical background.
