Feature Sets

Crundale is a village sited in a steeply-sloping rural landscape about half-way between Ashford and Canterbury, about 9 miles SW of Canterbury. The church of St Mary the Blessed Virgin consists of a nave with N aisle only, a chancel and a non-axial W tower beside the N porch. The building was restored in 1894 by Edgar Philip Loftus Brock. Romanesque evidence survives in the nave N arcade.


The church is not mentioned in Domesday Book, and there is very little information in historical records. In 1396 King Richard II granted the church of Crundale to the college of All Saints, Maidstone.
