Church The church of ST. JAMES was built in 1857–8 of lias stone in the 13th century style and consists of an apsidal chancel, nave with bell-turret, north porch, and south vestry. It replaced an ancient building, restored in 1839, which was no doubt that described c. 1640: 'The chappell is buylded all of tymber, being halftymbered both the chancell and the church. It standeth on a pretty high hill; southwards and westwards it hath a great discent and a very fyne prospect. There is both buriall and christning here. . . . There are no armes nor monuments.' The register of burials begins 1572, baptisms 1613, and marriages in 1605. (fn. 27) Advowson The chapel of Weethley, which was attached to the church of Kinwarton, was held by Ralph of Kinwarton, and given by him to the abbey of Evesham towards the close of the 12th century. In 1413 an agreement was made by which the inhabitants were to provide a clerk to officiate in the chapel, to whom the rector of Kinwarton should pay 26s. 8d. yearly. In 1730 the curate's salary was about £20. The living is now annexed to the rectory of Arrow, and is in the gift of the Marquess of Hertford
