I loved walking through the neighborhoods of West Drayton to see this lovely historic old church. I found it to be so very different from the large gothic and ancient cathedrals I'd explored for the previous several weeks in The Netherlands, Belgium and France. The architecture is very different as are the materials used for construction; you can sense that this is a church for the ages. The grounds are lovely, the cemetery unique and the accompanying gatehouse is also an interesting building. I must return to see the inside. While peeking through the doors and clear windows, I could see just how beautiful and unusual the stalned glass windows are. In fact, I truly wish to be able to attend services there!…

They invite the local schools in on certain days and have coffee mornings to get people in, as well as a hall that is used by local groups that are unconnected to church, Zumba and martial arts spring to mind- on separate days though! Also a parent/ pre school group on a Thursday morning.…

St. Martins Church is where my family has celebrated weddings, births, and funerals for generations. I visit this lovely picturesque church when ever I come home to the U.K. If you enjoy beauty and history then do visit.

The churchyard is lovely and peaceful and the church itself is mainly 15th Century. The church is not always open to visitors so check on their website to find the next Open Event. It has some lovely stained glass windows and a very old font.

We visited st Martin's in September, unfortunately it was closed but still was quite interesting to walk about and enjoy the peace sitting in the interior court yard.
