St Mary's Church Sundridge
St Mary's Church, Sundridge is Grade I listed and is mentioned in 862. The current building dates from the 12th century and was extended to add the aisle in the 13th century. The Church was renovated and expanded in the 15th century and the chancel was remodelled in the early 19th century but it was damaged by fire in 1882. The western tower is probably
13th century and the door, window and buttresses were
added in 15th century.  The chancel has two bay arcades
to side chapels and the east window probably consisted
of lancets, the remains of which can still be seen. There is
a carved reredos from 1882. There are 6 bells and the
spire is shingled.
   
The interior of the church has many historic and
interesting features including the Thomas Isley brass. 
Thomas Isley married Elizabeth Guldeford and they had
13 children, the eldest being Henry. Thomas died in 1520
aged about 35 and Elizabeth 12 years later. The West
window is stained glass depicting Isaiah, Christ and John
the Baptist and is by Heaton Butler & Bayne, 1862.

The Friends of St Mary's Church Sundridge is a charity
formed to help with the preservation of the Church building,
to improve the facilities and access to the Church.
