St Martin’s Church Wall Decorations

The church tower was originally Norman, and the chancel arch 13th century. Parts of the arcade probably date to the 15th century, and the north aisle dates to the 16th century.
Lord Lovelace rebuilt the chancel and south wall of the nave in 1869. He also rebuilt the churchyard wall adding a number of his architectural details, such as the brattish work (arrow slits) and corbelled arcading of moulded terracotta.
