Church of St. James the Great (1), Cranham
Church of St. James the Great (1), Cranham
Founded in the 12th century but subject, like so many others, to a major renovation and extension in Victorian times. It is a Grade II listed building. The church has connections with the composer Gustav Holst, as his mother Clara von Holst (nee Lediard) played and taught the piano here. Sadly she died young in 1882, when Gustav was about eight years old. Much more recently, the church was in the spotlight in June 2011, when pop star Lily Allen was married here.
