St James’ Church, Moulton Chapel, is a Grade II* listed church in the Lincoln Diocese.
St James was built in 1722 as a daughter church to All Saints Moulton, with additions C19. It is a delightful, octagonal gem of a church with Dutch influences.
By 1886 the church was in a poor state of repair and a local appeal raised money for the repair and refurbishment. During the restoration the Chancel was added to the east and the bell tower was removed. Internally new pews and paved floors were provided. In 1923 Vestries were added to the north and south sides of the Chancel.
Soul Architects have been appointed to undertake the HLF Grant Aided Repairs.
During the investigation phase the roof covering was opened up and the structural repairs carefully considered, the roofs will be recovered with new Welsh Slate and it is hoped that the timber tower can be reinstated. Careful brick and stone repairs will be carried out and where possible damaging cement mortar removed.
Internally the Victorian decorative scheme will be reinstated to the Altar with a complimentary colour added to the remaining walls. A new electric heating system will be installed.
The investigation phase was completed in January 2016.
