Church of The Holy Cross
This is the old parish church of Greenford Magna. There was a chapel in the community circa 1157 but the current church is believed to date to circa 1500. However some parts are believed to be earlier - 13th / 14th century. The church is one of the three oldest buildings in the Borough of Ealing (the other two being St. Mary's Northolt and St. Mary's Perivale) and probably only survived the Victorian rebuilding because there was no need to rebuild it in the nineteenth century as it was in a parish that remained largely rural. Growth in the 1920's / 30's brought a need for a larger church and a new building was added adjacent to this one on the western side. Fortunately the decision was made at the time to retain the old church and following a period of deconsecration, it was reconsecrated in 1956 and is now used for services where the congregation is envisaved to be smaller than 100 and also for weddings and other small private events.
