St James's Church, Hampton Hill


There are four beautifully worked mosaics, each surrounded by a marble border, at the east end of both the north and south aisles. The Mosaic of St James was unveiled and dedicated on Sunday December 21st as a memorial to the late Miss Jane Barnard, a prominent parishioner described as “Mr Job’s right hand”. A second memorial to her was a cross in the churchyard.
