Greenford: Church of the Holy Cross (New Church)
Greenford: Church of the Holy Cross (New Church)
This church was designed as a replacement for TQ1483 : Greenford: Church of the Holy Cross (Old Church) which had become too small for the rapidly growing population of Greenford in the 1930s. Construction of the Grade II* Listed Building commenced in 1939 and was completed, despite interruption during the war, by 1941. Its tithe barn style was designed by Sir Albert Richardson.

The Old Church was closed in 1951 and its demolition was considered. However its historic and architectural significance were recognised and it was reprieved, being reconsecrated in 1956. Today it is used for services where the congregation is anticipated to be less than 100, while the New Church is used for larger events.
