Inside Cranford Park and just in Hillingdon Borough (other Cranford churches are in Hounslow Borough).The tower is 15th century, the nave of 1710. There have been restorations by J.L. Pearson and Martin Travers and one just completed in March 2013, the church is open most Saturdays. It was once next to the a great house but all that now remains are the stables. The rural charm is spoilt by the M4 thundering past a few yards away.
One of outer London’s most fascinating churches. It lies south of the village centre down a long driveway. The church is mainly 14th century, with a 13th century chancel.The tower and north aisle are 16th century. However the interior is the a main feature, there are plaster ceilings from the 18th century by Henry Keene, a chancel crammed full of monuments and raised so high above the nave to accommodate a mausoleum that the three decker pulpit hardly shows above its floor. Most monuments are to the Newdigate family from the 15th to the 19th century.
