St Martin's is the original building given to St Augustine by King Aethelberht when he arrived in 597, when it was one of the few Roman buildings still standing. It is thus perhaps the oldest church building in continuous use in England. The chancel is the oldest part of the building, seen here from its south side, showing the Roman brickwork and two low blocked-up doorways, one arched and one square.
