St James' Church, Shilbottle (Anglican)
There has been a church on the site of St James' since the 9th Century. The first church was probably a wooden structure but after the Norman Conquest a noble family called Tison erected a stone building. This building was largely replaced in the 1880's with some features, such as the arch over the porch doorway and the bowl of the font remaining.
The church is dedicated to the name of the Apostle St James the Great whose symbol is the scallop shell, which can be seen in the church today. A Victorian vicar changed the name of the church from St James' Shilbottle to St James' Shilbotel, to reflect a more ancient usage.
In 1921 a fine Arts and Crafts stained glass was placed in the East window to serve as the village war memorial.
A stone in the church dedicated to the memory of Samuel Widdrington is recorded as coming from the Court of the Lions in the Moorish palace of the Alhambra in 1829.
