St Martins' Heritage Days for 2021

St Martins

The Lady Chapel, St. Martins', Low Marple

Heritage Open Days

Friday 10 September 2021, 2.00 – 6.00 pm;
Saturday 11 September 2021, 10.00 – 3.00 pm.

The church will be open with plentiful information. It is hoped that refreshments can be served. There will be a small exhibition on ‘Edible Marple’, surveying how food shops and cafes have offered physical sustenance to Marple through the years, while St Martin’s has provided (we hope) spiritual sustenance. See the poster here

All being well, a normal programme of events will be resumed in 2022.

About the Society

Monthly meetings are held between September and April, several field trips are made each year. The society publishes a range of publications, has an active archive session on Thursday mornings, and organises occasional exhibitions. More details here.
