An old village church in a quiet rural setting

St Martin is set in a beautiful rural location with Castle Howard and the Howardian Hills close by. Drifts of snowdrops and daffodils clothe the churchyard in spring and sheep graze between the gravestones in summer.

The church is equally attractive. It was built around 1400 - although some parts may be 200 years older. Inside, the church is simple and airy, with pale stone offset against limewashed walls. Among the most interesting features are 14 massive Medieval oak benches and a Jacobean screen, with original door latch and hinges.
