The oldest building in Brent
Possibly of Saxon origin, and considered to be the oldest building in Brent, St Andrew's Old Church nestles in a wooded grove to the south of its Victorian successor which dominates the skyline. St Andrew's retains the feel of an old country parish church. Inside are fine brasses and memorials to well-known local families dating from the sixteenth to nineteenth centuries.
A glory of English Baroque architecture
A remnant from the past standing in the present
An untouched Tudor gem
