West Tilbury – St James (closed)

We passed by this church on 27th March 2019, on a dull day weather-wise.

This church was closed in 1979 and now appears to be a private residence. There are stone dragons on the top of the lych gate, and a large woodpile, so presumably there is a wood-burning stove inside. Also several lamps in the grounds, they don’t look like church lamps. Visitors still have access to the churchyard, although the church itself and its grounds are private.

This church is visible from the Tilbury loop railway line, and I have always been curious about it.
