Crofton Road
St.Paul’s Church Crofton. In the 1886 a meeting in Orpington, agreed to try and build a Chapel of Ease at Crofton. A site was offered by Mr John Locke Lovibond, of Starts Hill Farm, and a working party cleared the site of trees and undergrowth. the plans of Mr George St Pierre Harris, an Orpington architect, were chosen, as was the builder Messrs Hall of Croydon, and a fund raising party was formed the opening ceremony was 5th January 1888. The church soon got overcrowded at the services each Sunday and in the early years of the 1900’s plans were made for an extension .In the 1950s Crofton became a separate parish. And a new church of St Paul’s was built in 1953 By A. B. Knapp-Fisher. The church of 1887 is now the parish hall. lychgate
