St James’s Church, Piccadilly, also known as St James’s Church, Westminster, and St James-in-the-Fields, is an Anglican church on Piccadilly in the centre of London. The church was designed and built by Sir Christopher Wren.

The church is built of red brick with Portland stone dressings. Its interior has galleries on three sides supported by square pillars and the nave has a barrel vault supported by Corinthian columns.

With our extensive experience working within proximity to the public we were able to implement procedures that minimised the risk of access or injury ensuring the works were completed within a safe and timely manner.

Working on numerous projects in conjunction with church architect Ptolemy Dean, Paye’s heritage team have completed various projects including:

  • Cleaning and repair of the external brick elevations
  • Repairs to the lead and clay peg tile roof
  • Reordering of the north entrance gate and installation of a disabled access ramp
  • Internal cleaning and repair
