St Michaels’ Church

St Michael’s Church, Martin

Although restored in 1877 and built of a patchwork of greenstone and brick, the church is essentially Norman.  

You enter the church through a striking Norman doorway, its capitals carved with grotesques. Inside is a spectacular chancel arch, dating from around 1200 and a wonderful example of the transition between Norman and Early English. This narrow opening admits to a dark chancel, sheltering a stone altar with medieval mensa.

On the east wall of the chancel is a bracket formed from a waterleaf capital.

Churchwarden contact details can be found in the “Who’ section.
