Fenny Stratford: St Martin's Church
Fenny Stratford: St Martin's Church
The building of the church was funded by Browne Willis (1682-1760), the local Lord of the Manor, an antiquary, lawyer and MP, as a memorial to his famous physician grandfather, Thomas Willis. The church was built on the site of an earlier chapel and the foundation stone was laid on St Martin's Day (11 November) 1724, with completion achieved in 1730. The church was substantially rebuilt and enlarged, on the right here, in Victorian and Edwardian times. The original church on the left, with its embattled parapet, is remarkable for the Gothic windows, the 1720s being a very early date for such ecclesiastical architecture.
