St Mary Magdalene, Flaunden

In the far west of Hertfordshire, indeed the previous church was actually in Buckinghamshire. This was George Gilbert Scott’s first church and it is very much a building of its date – 1838. The east window has John Hayward glass of 1958. The glass by David Wasley from 1999 is, unusually, in the screen rather than a window.

Holy Cross, Church End, Sarratt

A couple of miles north of Chorleywood, in very attractive country above the Chess valley. The small church is well south of the main village centre. Basically a 12th century building, with the chancel extended in the 13th and 14th centuries. The tower is 15th and 16th century. G.G. Scott restored the church in 1865-66, adding vestries and porch and extending the aisles. The pulpit is 16th century, east window by Clayton and Bell with other early 20th century glass by Christopher Whall and modern glass by Chapel Studios and Alfred Fisher.
