St. Martin's Church

St. Martins is the parish church of Birmingham, or "The Cathedral of the Bull Ring", as some would say. The first church was probably Norman, but was rebuilt in the 13th century.

As it stands today, most of the church dates from the late 19th century, though inside you can see effigies of the de Berminghams, who were Lords of the Manor. Their home was nearby.

There are windows by Burne-Jones and William Morris inside.

In 2003, the exterior was cleaned and refurbished, in conjunction with the redevelopment of the adjacent Bullring area.
