The Church of St Martin, also known as Sarum St Martin, is a Church of England parish church in Salisbury, Wiltshire. The church dates back to the 13th century and is a grade I listed building.


The church has a 13th-century chancel, a 14th-century tower with spire, and a 15th-century nave with aisles. From 1849 to 1850, the church building was restored by Thomas Henry Wyatt and David Brandon.

On 28 February 1952, the church was designated a grade I listed building.

Present day

The parish falls in the Traditional Anglo-Catholic tradition of the Church of England. As it rejects the ordination of women, the parish receives alternative episcopal oversight from the Bishop of Ebbsfleet (currently Jonathan Goodall).
