This church was founded in the 10th century and partially rebuilt in the fashionable 'Gothic Perpendicular' style in the late-14th or early-15th century. It was one of the largest parish churches in Surrey, partly a result of donations from successive archbishops of Canterbury, who had a summer palace in Croydon. The medieval church structure was mostly destroyed by fire in the late 19th century and rebuilt to the same design by Sir GG Scott in 1870.
