The parish church of St Martin's Church in East Horsley dates back to Norman times (11th Century), though it has been added to over the centuries. The church has a chancel and nave with a Tower on the western end. During the 1860's it was extensive modernised under the supervision of Lord Lovelace, who owned Horsley Towers nearby. During this time he also oversaw the building of the church walls, adding a Gazebo on the southwest corner. In 1893 he had a Mausoleum built in the northeast corner of the churchyard. His was a distinctive style, as evidenced further in a highly decorated chapel he had built in memory of his first wife within Horsley Towers.
Inside, the church contains the tomb of Thomas Cornwallis and his wife, who was a member of the court of Queen Elizabeth I.
