In 1734 Benjamin Withers with his wife Mary, took Samuel Withers to St Martin's for his baptism. Leaving his taylors shop in Smallbrook street, would they have "up" to St Martin's or "down " to church? I.e. was there a slope, and if so was it up to church, or down to church?
Rosary_boy, they were removed to Witton Cemetery. I'm never sure what happenens to the actual gravestones from these removals though. some churches use them in the paths but there aren't any at St. Martin's.
This allegedly shows St Martin’s in 1812 undergoing repair work, as seen from Moat Row. It’s also claimed that the image shows the railings around the moat. The image appeared in the Evening Despatch on 7 July 1939. Viv.
