Places of Worship: City Centre (Bull Ring)
St Martin in the Bull Ring
Edgbaston Street, Birmingham. B5 5BB • (0121) 600 6020
St Martin in the Bull Ring is one of the most ancient and contemporary buildings in Birmingham. Most of this Grade II listed church is from the nineteenth century. It was built in 1873 and is an example of gothic Victorian architecture, designed by Alfred Chatwin from Birmingham.
There has been a church on this site since 1290 and may well have been a simple place of worship here in Saxon times. Inside is the oldest monument in the city, a 1325 effigy of the Lord of the Manor Sir William de Bermingham.
St Martin has undergone a major refurbishment over the past ten years making it more light and open and facilities now include a tea lounge, healing centre and learning and advice service.
