St James's Church, Dover

St James's Church, Dover

Old St James's Church is a Saxon church mentioned in the Domesday Book. The structure of the church that is preserved until the present dates back to the 12th century. It was also used for official meetings by Barons of the Cinque Ports. In the 19th century, a decision was made to enlarge the church and to give it a new look. A new church with the same name was built in the region of Maison Dieu Road. During World War II, it was seriously damaged and the old church was maintained as a historical place that would commemorate people who suffered so much during the war. The new church was restored and continued to function.
