9. St Martin's Church Bulmer, near Castle Howard

The present St Martin's Church, Bulmer

The present St Martin's Church, Bulmer, dates from the late 11th century (Norman) but there was almost certainly an earlier Saxon church. Such churches are well worth visiting by any visitor whether touring on foot, cycle or by car, so PLEASE leave a donation to help the church, i.e. by the guide book for a small sum of money, it costs considerable sums of money to keep these fine old English churches in 'good condition'

The late 13th century effigy of praying knight in chain mail is one of the oldest surviving medieval effigies in Yorkshire and is believed to honour Sir John de Bulmer who died in 1268. The legs were broken off to make way for the pulpit! Below this is a foliated cross and sword typical of a 12th century tomb.
