Whenby, St Martin's Church
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The nave benches are original medieval work and the octagonal, moulded font is also 15th century. There are several carved heads decorating the nave capitals.
It is the south porch that will draw your eye most. This is quite unusually elaborate, in a two-bay design and embattled top. Two-light windows are set in each bay.
St Martin's is not in regular use and is cared for by the Churches Conservation Trust.
