The Church of St James
The Church of St James lies at the centre of the historic market town of Louth, a historic thriving market town with a Georgian heart.
St James's has the tallest spire (295 feet) of any medieval parish church in the country. It is a magnificent fifteenth century building that is featured in Sir Simon Jenkin's book, England's 1000 Best Churches.
Thousands of visitors are drawn to visit the church every year because of its aura of spirituality and architectural beauty.
Visitors are welcomed by church guides and the church has a gift shop and a coffee shop under the tower (various hours).
We hope you will take time to browse the site and learn more about the church and its history.
