St James Church, Muswell Hill is a large Anglican church in London, known as "the Church on the Hill". The original building was consecrated in 1842, and the church was extended in 1874. The foundation stone for the current building was laid in 1900. The building was gutted by World War II bombing, and the restored church was rededicated in 1952. The church center building foundation stone was laid on 20 May 1994 and can viewed in the bookshop.
The Church spire was completed in 1910, the spire stands 300 ft above sea level-this is how the church got the name "Church on the Hill" The tower is 21 feet square and 80 feet high. On top if this the spire rises to another 82 feet and the total height to the top is 170 feet.
