St Andrew’s Parish Church
St Andrew's Church, Middle Church Lane, Farnham, Surrey, GU9 7PW
St Andrew's is a Grade I Listed Building built on the site of an earlier Saxon church. Parts of a Norman structure remain but the main part is 15th century, extensively remodelled in the 19th century when the church tower was raised in height.
Features: the Great East stained glass window has five lights depicting the Life of Christ. Installed in 1853, it was designed by pioneering Gothic Revival architect A.W.N. Pugin and had previously been shown at the Great Exhibition in Hyde Park in the same year.
On the south west buttress of the west tower is a simple stone tablet with elegant carved lettering designed by Eric Gill, commemorating the life of the noted Farnham author George Sturt.
Also on Saturday between 1200 and 1600, there will be a Parish Fayre with family fun with parachuting Teddies, Mr Giant the Big Entertainer, stalls, a Grand Draw and more.
This event took place in September 2016 and the entry is now archived.
