St Martin

St Martin's: a community of prayer and welcome in the name of Jesus Christ since before 597AD. The oldest church in continuous use in the English speaking world. Part Roman, part Saxon. It was here that St Augustine set up his mission when he arrived from Rome to convert the English.


St Peter

St Peter's is in a windswept location, in open farmland, with ancient yew trees and a patina of great antiquity. Abutting the north side of the tower, and entered from the church, is a rare medieval priest's house.
