About the St James’ Weybridge Church Building
For more than 800 years a church has stood on the site of St James’. The church is not only an important part of Weybridge’s architectural heritage, but also a beautiful landmark that gives Weybridge its unique character.
Although the building of St. James’ was completed only in 1848, it replaced the Church of St. Nicholas , which had served the people of Weybridge for many hundreds of years.
Since its consecration in 1848, St James’ has been enlarged twice. The chancel was enlarged in 1889 and, soon after, the outer south aisle was added. The chancel arch, originally very little higher than the arches in the nave, has also been heightened by ten feet, thereby greatly enhancing the proportions of the building.
St. James is a particularly fine example of the work of John Loughborough Pearson and is often described as the “Cathedral of the Thames Valley” as the spire is a noted local landmark.
