St Francis & St Anthony, Town Centre
The Friary Church of St Francis and St Anthony is a Roman Catholic church in Crawley West Sussex. The towns first permanent place of Roman Catholic Worship was founded in 1861 next to a friary whose members, from the Order of Friars Minor Capuchin had been invited to the area by a local wealthy family of catholic converts. Crawleys transformation from a modest market town to a rapidly growing postwar new town in the mid- 20th century made a larger church necessary and in the late 1950s the ecclesiastical architect Harry Stuart Goodheart-Rendel was comissioned to build a new church. The friary closed in 1980 and has been demolished, however, the large brick church known as The Friary Church of St Francis and St Anthony still stands. English herritage has listed the building as grade 2 for its architectural and historical importance.
