St Mary, Ramsden Crays Church - Ramsden Crays parish church is described in Pevsner as being 
"Now disused and ruinous." This would have been part of the revision made by 
Enid Radcliffe. 
Further investigation has shown that the church was, indeed, 
unfit for use in the 1960s, and the congregation used the nearby church hall for 
all services. In 1993, the church was again closed, this time permanently, and 
the church hall took over all its functions.

St Mary, Ramsden Crays Church - Despite the church now undergoing conversion into a private 
dwelling, the churchyard is still open and used for burials. 
The main fabric of the church dates from 1871, when a major 
rebuild was undertaken. Some materials from the original 14th century church 
were reused however, including the windows and the belfry with its broach spire.
