Saturday 20th May: combined Church Opening and Coffee Morning jointly hosted by the Heritage Trust and St Martin's Mothers' Union. Join us from 10.30-12.30 to enjoy the beauty of the Church's heritage and coffee and cakes in the Church Hall. Feeding body and soul!

History Evening at St. Martin's Church: 21 April 2017

A History Evening has been arranged at St Martin's on Friday 21 April 2017 at 7.30 p.m. taking place in the Parish Hall behind St Martin’s Church on Brabyns Brow below the station.

The Trust is interested not only in the artistic treasures in the church, but also in the history of the parish, and the part St Martin’s played in the history of Marple.

At our History Evening, there will be a short talk with slides, and then we hope that people will offer their own memories of Marple life.

If you have any memories, or are just interested, please join us.

Admission is free, refreshments will be available.

Programme of openings start Saturday 15 April 2017

We will be starting our programme of openings on Saturday mornings from Saturday 15 April 2017 until Saturday 28 October 2017 from 1030-1230. Come along to see the restored Whall painting. We will be looking for more stewards/guides for this project over the next year: if you would be interested in becoming a guide please contact the Trust via our Contact Us page: full training will be given! The first training meeting will be held on Saturday 15 April 2017.
