About

Saint Dunstan's is known locally as the 'Cathedral of The Weald' because of its size and splendour. It is not a true cathedral but a large and impressive parish church. It reflects the wealth of Flemish weavers who settled in Cranbrook in the 1330s and sparked a rich 250-year period of local prosperity and growth.

The stone building you see today largely dates back to 1550 but a church has been on the site from as early as the 11th century. A gradual, piecemeal programmed of extension and refurbishment over four centuries culminated in the magnificent structure you see today.

Highlights of any visit to St Dunstan's include the beautiful stained-glass windows, magnificent medieval green men carvings, a unique total immersion font, some fascinating connections to early American settlers and extraordinary gothic architecture.
