St James's Church, Hampton Hill

Stonework and tilework in the chancel and sanctuary


There is a consistency in the use of stone, tile and marble throughout the church which seems to symbolise the unity of the Holy Trinity. Colours and patterns all harmonise.

A corbel is a stone bracket projecting from a wall or corner to support an arch, a beam or similar heavy structure, or simply for decoration. It sticks out of a wall and in St James's Church is made of stone, but could be made of brick.
