The congregation of St Mary the Virgin, Martham welcome you to our website.  Our wish is that you find it interesting, helpful and informative.  

Our lovely church is one of the largest in the area and is sometimes referred to as “The Cathedral of the Fleggs” because of its size. (Flegg itself is probably Old Norse, meaning a place where water plants or flags could be found.)

We hope that you will take some time to look through the site and learn of the past and present of our beautiful church. You will also find items, which will show you what we hope for in the future.

Should you be able to visit us in person, we can assure you that there will be a warm welcome for you at St Mary’s. The Church is open to visitors during most daylight hours all the year round (services permitting)
