Banstead – St Ann

4 Brighton Rd, Banstead, Surrey SM7 1BS

St Ann’s Church is an unpretentious but serviceable building.  

Prior to the construction of this church the parish worshipped in a temporary hut. The present church, designed by C. W. Glover & Partners, was erected on the same site in 1950.  Five years later the apsidal sanctuary was replaced with a square one designed by the architect Justin H.

An extension has been built adjacent to the east end of the church making the overall shape of the building into an L.
