Overview

Parts of this fifteenth-century church were destroyed in an air raid during World War II, but many have been restored to their former glory including the famous clock, dating back to 1668, and the great west window, depicting scenes from the life of St. Martin of Towers.

York was bombed once during WWII. Read about it before you go. This church was hit and destroyed. The stain glass window was removed before the bombing and thus saved. The church was rebuilt and the original stain glass window was reinstalled. Worth seeing if...More

This was my second visit here and this time the church was busy with a Christmas card sale. The church was extensively bombed in WW2 and was derelict for many years but is now a working church.

St. Martin's was not easy to find since there was a lot of construction going on in the area, but we persevered and found it! Some of the windows are really spectacular!

On the warmest day of the year, to come into this church and reflect on life was good. The church was very nearly destroyed in World War 2 and rebuilt in part in the years afterwards. It still functions as a church but also an...More

I called in to St. Martin-le-Grand's during Holocaust Week as it is the centre dedicated to peace and reconciliation. The golden reredos depicting The Last Supper immediately catches the eye, but on this visit I noticed the unique, glass enclosed organ fascinated me. It's a...More
