Open window, St James' church

St James' Anglican Church, consecrated in 1824, is the oldest surviving church building in Sydney. It was designed by convict architect, Francis Greenway.

It was originally meant to be a courthouse, and part of the Supreme Court of NSW ajoins it. In the picture below you can see the court building, and the spire of St James.
