St Peter’s, Marton

St Peter’s, Marton, hidden away in East Marton (formerly called Church Marton) serves that hamlet and West Marton, under the old-fashioned name of Martons Both.
A simple church, with a solid Norman tower, hidden in a fold of the hills. It stands at the point where the Pennine Way (marking the spine of England) crosses the Leeds–Liverpool Canal (marking the east-west line across the middle of Britain). We like to think of our parish as the intersection of the cross that marks the centre of the nation.
St Peters, Marton uses the Book of Common Prayer. Throughout the year Marton also hosts a range of services including Holy Communions, Mattins and other occasional offices.
The Church is situated on the Pennine Way and near to the Leeds and Liverpool Canal. The Church, which is open during daylight hours attracts a regular stream of visitors as testified by the visitors’ book.
The Church has a large car park situated adjacent to the churchyard.
The Church has a committed congregation and also enjoys excellent community support beyond the regular church attendees.
