LOCATION The small, attractive Cheshire village of Marton is situated on the A34 road 3 miles (5 km) to the north of Congleton.

The Davenport Arms in the village dates back to the eighteenth century and was once part of the Capesthorne Estate. The building started its life as a farmhouse, the farmer starting to brew his own beer as a sideline until eventually it became the village pub.

Marton is home to the oldest oak in the county, which has been estimated by a number of experts to be at least 1,200 years old. The Marton Oak has been measured several times in the last 200 years, the trunk was found to be an incredible 58ft in circumference before it split. It now bears the appearance of being three separate trees, this suggestion can be ruled out because the tree has been found to have just one root system below ground. In autumn the acorns are collected and sold for 10 pence each to the benefit of the local church. The tree is situated at the end of a driveway in Marton, linking with Oak Lane.

The village's most outstanding feature is its fourteenth century timber-framed church, a Grade I listed building. The Church of St James and St Paul was founded in 1343 and attracts visitors and photographers from afar .For those who enjoy outdoor sport Marton Meadows golf course is open all year round and is

currently working on refurbishing their club house and are encouraging villagers to use it for any social occasions. There is also Marton Heath trout farm for keen anglers and also photographers where great attention to conservation is evident with trees , hedges and wildflower planting supplementing the natural beauty of the surrounding countryside. There are a number of lovely walks for ramblers and also the picturesque Redesmere Lake just a few minutes away.

There is the highly reputable La Popote restaurant for fine dining or lunch or even a coffee in the beautiful garden or just for a coffee there is the old Barn Kitchen and coffee house which is great for more casual dining
