The Churches of Britain and Ireland
St. James (12th century). Interior view. SS 065 977. © Mike Berrell. As you can see, the aisle doesn't line up with the window and altar - Mike explains that this is an example of a "Weeping Chancel", and "is said to show the inclination of Christ's head upon the cross, also it allows the early sun on St. James's Day (25 July) to shine through the east window." Another interior, and an unusually large squint, both © Mike Berrell (2011). Two further views - 1, 2, an interior view, and the font, all © Dennis Harper (2011). Link.
