Documents and Downloads


Archive Album

The Archive Album contains a commentary on the scope of the project and full details of the work undertaken in words and pictures. It is intended to be the definitive document bringing together all aspects of the job. It provides a reference, not only for St James's church history but also for others who may be thinking about, or engaged in, similar work for their churches.

Please note that the album may take a few minutes to download unless you have a fast broadband connection.


Third Album (with substantial genealogy content)

This Album contains less commentary on the restoration work than the Archive Album does and is considerably enhanced by inclusion of as much genealogical information as it has been possible to research since the beginning of the project until 2014. Also included are examples of the paperwork associated with the approvals for the project and for obtaining some of the grants from donors. There are many details too of the events that were organised in support of the project.

Final Project Evaluation

In the early stages it was necessary to set out in some detail the aims and ambitions for the project, not only for the planning of the work, but also to be able to explain to potential donors how their money would be spent.

This document assesses how well the outcome matches the original aims and contains estimates of the contributions of time and expertise made by voluntary participants.
