On many of my drive bys, I noticed that it had a very unusual wooden clerestory.
I got very excited and my imagination got slightly carried away with this, concluding that it was medieval. However, when I actually managed to get a closer look I realised that it wasn't medieval at all, but Victorian (I have to admit, part of me was slightly disappointed).
Yet, the disappointment soon fell away when I went to have a peek at the inside.
The current St Martins was built in 1837 and internally, it is a Neo-Gothic architectural gem!! These pictures don't really do it justice as there wasn't enough light for my camera to cope with, but the whole of the inside is predominantly timber based on the Victorian ideal of medieval religious architecture.
The roof is absolutely stunning, especially over the altar.
