ST JAMES THE LESS, DORNEY

Court Lane, Dorney, Windsor SL4 6QP

Services every Sunday at 9:30 am

This small beautiful historic church dates from the 12th century and has been the local parish church since that time. We have a regular pattern of worship with mainly traditional services. We aim to share the good news of Jesus in word and sacrament in this special place. Many visitors remark on the warmth of welcome they receive here


The church is a Grade I listed building. It has been listed in some guide books and is occasionally used for filming. When possible the church is open on the May bank holiday weekends, for the last week in July and the whole of August, from 11.00 am to 5.00 pm

The Chancel and Nave were both built in the 12th century, the Chancel being the older but the arch between them dates from the 14th century. The tower was added in Tudor times and the porch in the 17th century.

As is the case with many historic churches, there have been changes through the centuries but the church still retains many features from the past, including a Norman font and a family pew dating from the 17th century. The West Gallery also dates from about that time.

Help us to maintain this beautiful church give here.

Court Lane Street Parking Consultation

Bucks County Council were proposing to install double yellow lines both sides on most of the length of Court Lane. However, following objections to the consultation, the Dorney Parking Review (including Court Lane) has been halted by Bucks CC.

Dorney Parish Council will develop a more holistic plan for traffic in Dorney, which we will be engaged with to ensure Court Lane remains available for public parking and people using the Church and Churchyard.​

Thank you to those that took the trouble to object.
