Surrey cannot compete with counties such as Kent, Norfolk and Somerset in the number of its CCT churches, having only three buildings vested in the CCT. However, all three buildings (in Albury, Cheam and Esher) have remarkable features, intriguing background stories and are distinctive by virtue of their sheer quirkiness. This talk is intended to provide a very brief introduction to these exceptional survivals and to highlight an opportunity to visit Old St George’s Church in Esher in May as part of the forthcoming “Royal connections in Surrey churches”.
