The Parish Church of St. James

North of Langley Burrell is Draycot Cerne, with its plain little church of nave, chancel and west tower set remotely in what once was a park.  This humble building houses a remarkable collection of monuments dating from 13th Century onwards, including a cross legged knight, a Jacobean altar tomb, and a magnificent pair of brasses.
