On the A34 - north of Congleton - can't miss it!
We parked in the large car park next to the church. From the car park the mound upon which the church is built is very noticeable.
Luckily the church was open and I had a good look around. There are some medieval wall paintings to be seen as well as two worn stone effigies of knights in armor. The leaflet I picked up stated that in the village there is an oak tree which is believed to be 1,200 years old - possibly the oldest in England. Unfortunately we didn't have time to look for it.
I like an old church and this is a good one.
Well worth stopping off for - particularly given its prehistoric roots.
Marton church is the oldest east-west aligned wood framed in use church in western Europe. The large mound it sits on is prehistoric, it's roughly circular and seems reminiscent of the Hully Hill monument near Edinburgh, and maybe eight feet tall. In a prehistoric Cheshire book, I read a theory that from this platform the Winter Solstice sunrise rises in a notch in the hills, and the Bridestones burial chamber is there also.
