St Martin's Church, York
|The Church of St Martin-cum-Gregory is on the south-east corner of Micklegate and St Martin's Lane. Its (probable) churchyard is mentioned in the period 1170-1180, when the church was known as St Martin Micklegate. It was proposed in 1548 to unite St Gregory Micklegate with St Martin's and this was enacted in 1586, with St Martin's being the only united benefice to retain a double name. It closed in 1947 and was later being developed as a stained glass centre. [The History Files]
