Marton Church

Artificial Mound


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. postman Posted by postman
