St Katherines Church Merstham
Facilities and additional information
This is a thirteenth Century Church to which Perpendicular features have been added. It is approached through a gate at the south of a steeply sloping churchyard. The large tower dates from about 1220 and it is said that parts of the tower arch come from the old London Bridge, brought back to the parish from which it was originally quarried. The west doorway is agood example of 13th Century work.Inside the walls are plastered, which is quite rare in Surrey. There is a 13th Century font, of Portland marble with many brasses on including one for John Elinbridge, dated 1473: the central figure has disappeared but those of two wives remain.
