St Martin's Church, Marple
St Martin's Church, Marple
Building of St Martin's began in August 1869 and the corner stone was laid by Ann Hudson of nearby Brabyns Hall in a ceremony held on 9 October that year. The total cost was 3,000, including furnishing, arguably the equivalent of 148,000 in today's terms. Work was complete in less than a year but the consecration service for the new church building and burial ground was delayed until 11 November 1870, St. Martin's Day. These facts do not even hint at the various controversies that surrounded the building of this church.
