    From there it is a five minute walk to the church on the other side of the ring road. Leave the car park down Culver Street South and take the first left into Payne Hill where there is a pedestrian underpass leading to St Martin’s Church Street.

    There is some STREET PARKING on single yellow lines (after 18.00) and resident’s parking (after18.00) in Tollgate Road and Marina Road.
