One of the glories of English Baroque architecture
Show full description
This early 18th-century church is one of the glories of English Baroque architecture.
The Trust only cares for the lavish Chandos Mausoleum that was added to the church in 1736. It has a magnificent monument by master carver Grinling Gibbons.
The walls and ceiling of the Mausoleum are lavishly decorated with a rare and remarkable example of 18th-century illusionistic wallpaintings in an English parish church by artist Gaetano Brunetti to complement the tomb of the 1st Duke of Chandos.
There are also hatchments in the ante-room.

Memorials to the locals in the oldest building in Brent
Possibly of Saxon origin, and considered to be the oldest building in Brent, St Andrew's Old Church nestles in a wooded grove to the south of its Victorian successor which dominates the skyline.
St Andrew's retains the feel of an old country parish church.
Inside are fine brasses and memorials to well-known local families dating from the 16th- to 19th-centuries.
