Holy Cross and St. Alban, Brickendon

Holy Cross & St. Alban, Brickendon

This is an unusual little church which is open every day. This was built in 1932 in the ‘Arts and Crafts’ style to serve as a chapel of ease for the local inhabitants.Given to the village by Constance Demain Saunders.

It is an atmospheric church which is very well cared for and  homely. There is a guide book at £1 and an interesting ‘Tourist Trail’ leaflet based around this church and Bayford, Little Berkhamsted, Newgate Street and Essendon. Most of these aren’t open every day which does limit the usefulness of this! (I found only Bayford and Brickendon open). There is also a prayer board to leave requests. Only 13 visitors in the book this year.

There is a website at http://www.hartfordhundred.org.uk but this gives no visitor information which is a pity.
