A neo-Norman church located in parkland

Richard Arundell of Allerton Park, heir to the Mauleverers, remodelled St Martin's between 1745-46, adopting a neo-Norman style. It was designed in its parkland setting and the west front and central tower are impressive.

Inside are a fine hammerbeam roof, pulpit, pews and benches, and a painting of Moses and Aaron over the chancel arch, as well as several timber Medieval effigies reputed to depict the Knights of Mauleverer, who were here for 600 years and founded the old church on this site.
