St Mary’s Church, the Parish Church of Harmondsworth, dates from the 12th-15th centuries. The South aisle, with its massive Norman columns, and the entrance are the oldest parts of the building still intact today. The North aisle dates from the 13th Century, the North Chapel the 14th Century, the chancel was remodelled in the 15th Century, and the tower was built in 1500. In the 19th century the church underwent extensive restoration and a porch and vestry were added but the original Norman font still exists today. This window features a red Cross and a wreath of flowers, and was installed in the church in 1983.
