St Mary of the Crays, Old Road, Crayford (Roman Catholic)

Almost opposite St Paulinus this church was built in 1972-73 to designs by W. Brian Mead replacing a church of 1842, demolished in 1974. The organ, some stained glass and altar rails were retained from the old church.

St Paulinus, Crayford

High on a ridge above the town centre and visible from a long way off. The interior is unusual as it is a double naved church with a chancel lined up 50/50 with each nave so the arcade dies into the apex of the chancel arch. The building is Norman with much 15th century enlargement and a restoration of 1862 by J.Clarke.The stained glass is mainly of 1953-55 by Hugh Easton.
