Often known as St Martin-le-Grand this once splendid church was bombed in 1942 and was partially rebuilt and rededicated in 1968. As such, the building is a fascinating mix of the modern and ancient.
The St Martin of Tours window on the north wall is a stunning 15th century masterpiece that was originally the great west window of St Martins and survived the bombing because it had been taken down for safe keeping in 1940.
Another ancient piece is the font which is of unknown age but known to be medieval. Compare this with the very modern reredos designed by Frank Roper in 1968 and you get a true feeling for what this lovely church is about.
