The Churches of Britain and Ireland

Croydon Minster on Church Street. Only elevated to Mister status in 2011, it was previously the Parish Church of St. John the Baptist. Established in Saxon times, the medieval church was largely destroyed in a fire in 1867, and subsequently re-built, retaining some of the older fabric. Another view. TQ 3194 6544.

Grade I listed.
