St Andrew's Old Churchyard 7374

London, Greater London, England

Brief Description

The old church stands in its overgrown churchyard, which has many old yew trees, a row of lime trees along the west side, a lych-gate and good 18th- and 19th-century monuments hidden in the undergrowth.

History

Although there was almost certainly a church here in Saxon times the present building dates from at least the 12th or 13th century with later additions. The Old Church became redundant when a larger church was called for to serve the growing population of Kingsbury and St Andrew's New Church, itself redundant in its original location in the West End, was re-erected here in 1931-4.
