The Church

A aisleless little church is in a park by the stables of the demolished Cranford House, near Hounslow, now a public park. Chancel and tower 16th C. Nave red-brick 1716. Perpendicular west tower, and, inside, a great number of 17th- and 18th-century monuments.

Restored by Martin Travers 1949.

West gallery removed as unsafe in 1895, but not enough seats so new gallery put up in 1936 for organ and choir.
