About this church

The building itself, built in 1831 to serve the growing town as it industrialised, is still an important feature of the town.

It is Commissioner's Gothic, and is quite unusual in still having the original gallery, which often finds itself in use for special services.

The peal of eight bells rings out across the town to call people to worship and to proclaim weddings.

St Martin

St Martin’s, dubbed the ‘hidden gem’ in Marple, is a simple Pennine sandstone building in the Arts & Crafts style, with windows and artefacts from that era.

St Mary Crowned

The Church is striking for its vast scale and interior height, it retains good quality late 19th century fittings and also retains a Caen stone Gothic high altar and reredos along with panelled stone communion rails with iron gates in situ.
