St. James the Great

Welcome to the ‘home’ page of
St. James the Great,

the parish church of Longdon, Staffordshire.
The shells below are links to the main pages in this site, and there are other links toward the bottom of the page. We hope you enjoy browsing and that you find the site interesting and informative. If you are not a regular worshipper here, we look forward to seeing you at one of our events or services.


The shell is one of the symbols of St. James. Pilgrims to the shrine of St. James in Santiago de Compostela used to collect scallop shells as a token of their visit.

St. James’ School have made a model of the church as part of their ‘Heritage’ project. This model, which is made from old boxes and scrap paper, will remain in church during the summer. It made its debut at school on 13th July alongside project work from every class, tracing the history of Longdon, its buildings and its people. We are very proud of our church school and of our close relationship with them.
Take a look at the school page in this website.

History open day 8th September.
