at St. Martin’s
St. Martin's is fortunate to have in its East Window what an expert has described as 'the finest collection of medieval glass in the North-West of England'. We also have a unique 'Arts and Crafts' inspired decorative scheme from the 1870 restoration by Henry Hughes of the renowned stained glass makers, Ward and Hughes of Frith Street, London. Henry Hughes also carried out a very sensitive restoration of the East Window. For more information follow the Our Building link on the left.
On your visit to the Lakes why not spend half an hour enjoying the peace and beauty of this ancient building as part of your visit to our community.
The churchyard is always open to visitors and includes the listed gravestone of Rasselas Belfield (at the east end of the church) which is one of English Heritage's Sites of Memory. Ironically a tombstone at the West end of the church commemorates John Bolton the owner of Storrs Hall and a local benefactor much of whose wealth was founded on the "triangular trade".
