This Church has (or had) a graveyard.

Note: any church within an urban environment may have had its graveyard closed after the Burial Act of 1853. Any new church built after that is unlikely to have had a graveyard at all.

Church History

This Place of Worship was founded in the 13th century, and we understand it is still open.

Kelly's Directory of 1932 describes St Andrew's Church as "an edifice of stone in the Early English style, consisting of chancel, clerestoried nave of three bays, north aisle, south porch and a low embattled western tower, with pinnacles, containing a clock and 3 bells". The font has a splendidly carved oaken cover. There are also several carved oak benches and two stone monuments, one (that of Sir Peter de la Pole and his wife) bearing recumbent effigies of a man and woman, the other with several small figures, but partly defaced and without date or inscription. Some remains of two piscinae still exist. Some restoration, and a new organ chamber, was carried out in 1888. There were then 60 sittings, so seemingly quite a small church. The parish records date from 1572 for baptisms, and 1573 for baptisms and marriages. The population in 1921 was 187.

Radbourne Hall "situated on an eminence, is a large square mansion of red brick in a finely wooded park, surrounded by extensive well-laid-out pleasure grounds of 18 acres". It was then the property of the trustees of Radbourne Settled Estate, and the residence of Mrs. Chandos-Pole. The Church is close to the Hall, but not part of the estate.


Now or formerly Church of England.

If more than one congregation has worshipped here, or its congregation has united with others, in most cases this will record its original dedication.
