Welcome to St. James, Tedstone Delamere HR7 4PS

Dawn HyettSt James,
                Tedstone DelamereTedstone Delamere itself is just one of a group of six former parishes which make up the Parish of Greater Whitbourne. There are four churches still in use and lovingly cared for, but the one at Wolferlow has now been made redundant.

The Greater Parish is situated in beautiful countryside in the North East of the County of Herefordshire. Bounded on the East by the River Teme and on the South by Bringsty Common, the western part consists of sparsely populated farmland, while Whitbourne itself is a large village, many of whose inhabitants are connected with farming, and some of whom work in Worcester or Birmingham.

The living is currently "Suspended" - that is, the search for a new incumbent is not being actively pursued - but we are very fortunate to have Rev'd Dawn Hyett (pictured here) as our Interim Minister from 6th November 2016, ably assisted of course by Assistant Priest Rev'd Doiran Williams. [Rev'd Clive Evans, Rural Dean, has legal responsibility for the Greater Parish during the Interregnum.]

Approached by a footpath down a field, with views over several counties, the well-being of the church owes much to the efforts of its churchwardens Kath Harris (and her husband Chris, who sadly died in 2014). This well-loved building contains much of interest. Some of the Norman parts are of tufa, and some of the more modern stained glass is from the workshops of Hardman and Kempe.
