Details

Marton - Ancient bridge.
Marton derives its name from 'moortown', a reference to the marshy land south of the village.

To the west of the main road is the parish church of St Esprit. The church was re-built in 1871 after a fire, but the tower and south arcade date from the 13th and 14th centuries.

The bridge over the Leam retains masonry on its south-west side from the time of Henry V when a 'fair bridge of lime and stone' was built by John Middleton, a local man who became a wealthy London mercer. The bridge is now scheduled as an ancient monument. There are some 17th century buildings surviving in the village.
