Welcome to the beautiful and ancient church of 

St James, Great Horwood and Singleborough


As you leave Winslow and turn right heading for Great Horwood you will soon see the Church Tower of St James. The Church is centrally sited in the High Street of Great Horwood.  Click here to be taken to a map of our location.


A fascinating article appeared in The Buckingham & Winslow Advertiser, 1st August 2014, as part of local historian Ed Grimsdale's series 'Back to the Past'.  In it he has condensed an article which appeared in a Detroit newspaper in 1881 describing an American's experience of bellringing at St James'.
