In Nairn's London (1966) Ian Nairn had this to say of Cranham:
"Of all the ways in which London meets its countryside, this is the least credible. When the Green Belt came into force in 1938, the outward swell of buildings stopped dead,two fields away. So you can look back to the serried roofs from what is still an unspoilt Essex hamlet- farm, house, rectory and church (unhappily Victorian) in a big leafy churchyard. Essex doesn't go in for cosification, so this is still rough and honest. There is a terrifying forty miles of solid brickwork behind those demure-looking semis half a mile away. You feel as Canute might have on the beach, but unexpectedly successful." This can be seen at Link

This is the view of the church and churchyard from the west. The monument in the foreground is 18th century.
