A fantastically colourful interior
St Martin's, with its beautiful square tower, dates back to the eleventh century. The building is a fascinating combination of Romanesque work and Victorian Gothic. It was restored exquisitely in 1861 by noted local architect James Fowler for local landowners.
The wonderfully colourful interior has elaborately patterned Minton tiles on the floor, walls and reredos, stunning stained glass and a number of monuments to members of the Haigh family.
