St. James the Great,
Dauntsey, Wiltshire, England



We first visited St. James the Great of Dauntsey in May of 2000 and returned in June to visit the annual village flower and garden festival.  Many of the gardens in the village were open to the public and the church looked glorious in its floral decoration.  We spoke to some of the church members, who were enthused about the history of their church, and were only too happy for us to take photographs to share on this website.  We returned to take more photographs inside the church in July 2005 as the church was preparing for another festival.  Our thanks go again to members for not minding our interruptions to their preparation work.

We were told their rare Doom Board was being renovated so was not at the church when we visited.  We do have one photograph of it sent, to us by Gary Danvers, and there is information and photographs of it at Jackie Harding's  website

Gary and Jane Danvers have information about the Danvers family at their website.  We have singled out a few pages that may be of interest to you:

    Home Page.
    Index to Genealogy Pages
    Doom Board

This church was built on part of Dauntsey Park estate.  You will notice from the photographs through the north porch - which shows a pond and fountain - that the church is rather unusual in that the church yard is only on two sides of the building, the other two sides adjoin the house gardens.

We haven't been to St. James for quite some time now, and we do hope to return to take more photographs.  At the time of our previous visits we took photographs using a video camera, and whilst it is good to have these photographs, they are of very poor quality so we would like to replace them with better ones.

This is a Grade I listed building - more information about the listing can be found at the:  British Listed Buildings  website.

More information about Dauntsey can be found at the  Wiltshire Online Parish Clerks  website.
