North Holmes Road,
Follow in the footsteps of Queen Bertha of Kent, who prayed here in the 6th century AD. Part Roman, part Saxon, part medieval, St Martin is the oldest church in continuous use in the English-speaking world. Here St Augustine reintroduced Christianity to southern England in AD 597. The church is the seed from which both St Augustine's Abbey and Canterbury Cathedral grew. The building is Grade I listed.
Organised by Canterbury Society and Friends of St Martin's Church.
