Product description

Colchester's Arts Centre occupies one of the most historic locations within the town. It's not only the site of religious worship over the past 700 years, but the church has witnessed war, plague and executions. This hardback edition tells is a unique story, never before told about one church that has seen it all! Blurb: Colchester's Arts Centre is one of this towns popular entertainment venues, which occupies the former church of St. Marty's at the Walls. Follow my journey of discovery into the rise and decline of this former church, as I uncover the unique story of its survival through 700 years of history. Discover the church's social history through wars and plague. Read how the parishioners twice financed the rebuilding of the church and the determination of her rectors to provide an education for its children. Learn how this church witnessed executions, survived earthquakes and was eventually destroyed by cannon fire during the Siege of Colchester in 1648. Finally, I'll show how urban modernization increased the parish population, resulting in the need to construct a new church called Christ Church and how a new road system affected the church, bringing about its closure. Along the way, I'll uncover some interesting stories and connections relating to the history of Colchester.
