Christ Church, Epsom Common
Another contribution to this series, started by sadexploration
Christ Church was originally built as a chapel of ease to the parish church in 1843, is now the church of a separate parish. It was rebuilt in 1876 with money donated by Elizabeth Trotter, a local philanthropist who lived in Horton Place, which subsequently became the Manor Hospital in the 1890's. It is a small building of flint and stone situated on the edge of Epsom Common, and consists of a small chancel with a north transept and south organ chamber, nave of four bays with north and south aisles and a clearstory, and a south-west tower and porch. At the west end is a passage-way containing the font. There are eight bells by Mears & Stainbank, 1890.
Take a rest with Maud Meyn ABCD-EFGH at the rear of the church.
