  Saint Martin's Church
by Geoff_Wright
 
 

There has been a church here for over 500 years, although only the tower of St Martin's Church dates back to the 15th Century. The main part of the church was destroyed by fire in the late 1800's. There is a 'new' oak screen with painted panels of Saint George and Saint Martin, and a 17th Century chest, but it is the really old things which are exciting. The Norman font has geometrical patterns, and there is a remarkable cresses stone, a block 18 inches across with seven holes in the top which were filled with tallow and wicks, to serve as lamps.
the church is well worth a visit, but many village churches are, sadly, locked now, due to acts of vandalism.
