Geocache Description:

St James The Great Syresham


This old church has some lovely medieval wall paintings, and victorian stained glass windows. The Saxon village of Syresham (or Sigresham) was once a forest clearing of about 400 acres, taken over by the Normans after their conquest. The church was built around 1200ad and boasts traces of early wall paintings including a representation of the Last Judgement, on the wall over the chancel arch. During the Reformation this painting was replaced by a list of the Ten Commandments, vestiges of which can still be seen. The church has several aspects of Norman architecture including a Norman front.
