The Church of St Martin-le-Grand, Dover

The Church of St. Martin-le-Grand dates back to the seventh century and was destroyed in the ninth century. A new church by the name of St. Mary-in-Castro was built with the remains of this church. At the remains of the old church in the 15th century, there are mentions about the three churches that merged under the same roof with different altars and services; the churches were St Martin, St Nicolas and St John-the-Baptist. During the Second World War, the church was destroyed and some remains of the church can now be seen in the market square that bears the original elements of the first church of this name.
