Shere was one of Thomas W. Sears favorite English villages and its church is the subject of several photographs. Parts of the Church of St. James date to the 12th century, with several subsequent additions, including a lych gate designed in 1901 by Sir Edwin Lutyens. This was one of the churches featured in Parish Churches of England, although the image of the church included there is not found in this series and was probably taken during a later trip.
