St Martin-in-the-Fields Church, London

St Martin-in-the-Fields stands at the north east corner of Trafalgar Square and as such is a building I’ve passed by plenty of times but never had the time to pop in until this last visit when I deliberately added it to my places to see. There’s been a church on the site since at least 1222 but the current building dates from 1722-1726.

Witley Parish Church

Although Witley Parish Church is adjacent to Witley Court, the church is separate and does not receive any aid from English Heritage. It is, however, an absolute must-see if you are intending to visit the Court. It doesn’t look very impressive from the outside, but the inside is nothing short of breathtaking.
