The Parish Church of St. James
North of Langley Burrell is Draycot Cerne, with its plain little church of nave, chancel and west tower set remotely in what once was a park. This humble building houses a remarkable collection of monuments dating from 13th Century onwards, including a cross legged knight, a Jacobean altar tomb, and a magnificent pair of brasses. The church is not publicly accessible and has to be pre-arranged for visits. For further details contact the OPC by email.
