History

A Brief History of St Luke's

St Luke’s celebrated its centenary during the year 2000.

The foundation stone was laid on 30th July 1898 and the Church was consecrated on St Luke’s Day, 18th October 1900, although the parish of Grayshott was not created until 1903.

During the last hundred years there have been ten vicars. Rev Jeremy Haswell is the current vicar, who was appointed in November 2018.

The Church and Village have grown together, side by side, during the last hundred years. Both the Church and the Village owe their existence to the generosity of three local families, the I’Ansons, Whitakers and Lyndons (Dr. Lyndon was Grayshott’s first doctor).

The Church itself is built in the Early English style to a design of its honorary architect Edward I’Anson.

The church is 102ft long, 42ft wide, and 43ft high in the nave, with the spire and tower reaching 100ft high. The Church has a seating capacity of 350 people.

The walls of the church are faced with local stone, Bargate (outside) and Headley (inside); the nave arcade, the arches and the windows are of Bath stone.
