St Dunstan's Churchyard, Cheam (also known as Cheam Parish Church)7382

Brief Description

St Dunstan's Church and Lumley Chapel stand in a well tended churchyard with mature cedars and yews. There are a number of historic tombs and a war memorial with an Arts and Crafts lych-gate of 1891 at the entrance.


A church in Cheam was recorded in the Domesday Book and probably dates from the early-11th century, dedicated to St Dunstan. The old church was demolished in the 1860s and a new church built next to the Lumley Chapel, which was the chancel of the medieval church that had been converted as a memorial chapel for the Lumley family in the late-16th century.
