St Martin's Church, Worle.

The first church of St Martin in Worle was built early in the 12th century and probably completed almost 900 years ago in AD 1125.

Ancient Worle

Worle is one of few places hereabouts which has never changed its name. Known as Worle when William the Conqueror arrived in 1066 this spelling has stayed with us for nearly one thousand years.  Parts of the original Norman Church are still visible in the 21st century.  The Norman arch inside the south door is a good example and substantial parts of the south wall are also 12th century.

The Church and the Monastic Barn watching developments with a critical eye, no doubt.

1912:  The trees have been pruned!

In the last two years we have been on a journey to refine our menswear collection.

St Martin's in its surroundings.

Probably 1920, if we take the graveyard as our guide.  Lovely view of surrounding cottages.
