Built of recycled Roman brick

St Martin's lies southeast of Colchester Town Hall, a spectacular Medieval survivor with a massive truncated tower. Many reused Roman bricks may be seen in its exterior, especially in its tower. Although there is evidence of eleventh-century work, most of the present building grew during the fourteenth century. Treasures include a wagon roof, Jacobean woodwork and a green man carving.
