St Martin

St Martin's is a medieval gem that looks much as it did in the 17th century when it was last altered with a rare 14th century scissor braced roof.

Hanes yr eglwys hon

Thompson is an ancient settlement dating from the 10th century and the church of St Martin dates from approximately 1300. St Martin's has a fascinating history since its endowment as a Collegiate Church in 1349 and the building of the college in which six priests resided.

Several influential people have been associated with the church, including John Pory, who was born in Thompson in 1572 and became the first Speaker of the first Legislative Assembly in Virginia, and Prince Frederick Duleep Singh who helped save the church 100 years ago.

The roof structure is a rare example from the first half of the 14th century of a scissor braced roof and consists of 40 pairs of rafters.

Adeiladwyd yr eglwys gyntaf ar y safle hwn yn 1841, ond fe’i difrodwyd yn ddifrifol gan dân. Yn ôl yr hanes, ym mis Mai 1891, cynhaliodd y Ficer ‘briodas yn yr adfeilion’.
