We stopped in Cranbrook en route to Hastings for refreshment. Parking up in the High Street we noticed this wonderful looking church and went to have a look in side. A very ornate, clean and well maintained church giving large space to wall memorials. The first of which on the west wall (and my favorite) Thomas Webster RA and what... More

The church door is open all day, every day, and the explanations of the history of the building are most helpful. Additionally, the welcome to worship on a Sunday is excellent.

I visited this church today and heard a concert given by two young musicians . They gave a varied programme, mainly older music but with a very modern piece for contrast.

Cranbrook was once the county town of Kent and the church echoes that status, It has two superb wooden carvings of Jack the Green in addition to other features

The church looked like it was well used and a key part of the community. Unusually you can see the bell ringing ropes underneath the tower on the upper floor. Also there is a full immersion baptism chamber hidden away.

A most beautiful building in an enchanting market town. The church is very well kept, as large as a small cathedral and with many items of great interest. A most inspirational and peaceful setting. However, I am bound to say that, in over 20 years of visiting, worshipping and donating to, nearly 200 churches in Southern England, I have never... More

English is full of old churches, but St. Dunstan's feels a bit like a small cathedral because of its size and the quality of the architecture. Keep an eye out for the Little Green Men, a small architectural detail that many might miss.

Beautiful church and I love the pews which I'm glad the vote was to keep. I have such fond memories of my children attending Sunday school when they were young. Guy was the vicar then. I always find the church peaceful. A walk up the tower is a must

This church sits just off the High Street with Old Father Time perched looking out over the obligatory yew tree in the churchyard. The coolness of the interior adds to the atmosphere of the vast space and it's wonderful to listen to a concert here.

The sound of twenties music greeted us as we got near the church. The Shanghai Syncopated Orchestra were entertaining people who were enjoying a delicious afternoon tea. The atmosphere was joyful. It was wonderful to see a beautiful space being also used for something other than prayer and Sunday services. The grounds around the church are beautiful
