This church is possibly of Saxon origin, and it is considered to be the oldest building in Brent. Set amid trees, it contrasts with its its nearby Victorian successor which dominates the skyline. With its 15th-century appearance and 19th-century restoration work, St Andrew's retains the feel of an old country parish church. And this sense is maintained internally, where some fine brasses and memorials to well-known local families dating from the 16th to the 19th centuries held to give an awareness of continuity in the worship and life of the neighbourhood.
