For more than a thousand years Christians have worshipped on this site in the centre of our busy market town. The buildings which have been here have evolved to meet the changing needs of the community and continue to do so.
St. Martin’s church is a handsome Grade 2* listed Victorian building designed by Henry Woodyer and built between 1868 and 1877. It is situated in a quiet churchyard within the conservation area next to Dorking High Street. With one of the tallest church spires in England, it is visible for miles around.
As you walk round admiring the building, take a few moments to stop and thank God for those whose gifts in design and construction have provided us with this lovely building. We hope you enjoy a tour of this beautiful church and take a few moments to stop and thank God for it’s peace and beauty.
