Robert Carr’s gift to St Mary’s Monken Hadley

The recent death of Lord Carr of Hadley reminds me of the chandelier in St Mary’s Monken Hadley.

It was given by Robert Carr who lived at the nearby 18th-century house called Monkenholt whilst he was Home Secretary in the early 1970s.

The church, just inside London, did not have electricity until 1931.
