Parish Church of St Martin, Herne Street, Herne, Herne and Broomfield - Canterbury

A large and very fine church, predominantly of the C14, but with substantial C19 restoration, with good monuments and medieval furnishings and brasses. The church is suffering from severely deteriorating stonework at the west end and low-level damp throughout. Roof tiles have slipped and rainwater goods are blocked and leaking. The first and second phases of repairs, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund Grants for Places of Worship, have now been completed. A third phase is due to start shortly. The building has been the victim of heritage crime.
