Something different for Heritage Open Days?

With Hollins Hill, the Arts and Crafts house hosting the Haworth Art Gallery, being closed for this year’s Heritage Open Days, you may be interested in visiting an Arts & Crafts Movement church instead.

St Martin’s Church, Low Marple in north Cheshire will open for two days of Heritage Open Days.

Friday 18 September 2020, 14.00-18.00

Saturday 19 September 2020, 10.00-15.00

St.Martin’s Church, Brabyns Brow, Marple Bridge, Marple, Stockport SK6 5DT

Next to Marple Railway Station.

Covid-secure arrangements observed.

Saint Martin’s Church is a blend of early and high Arts & Crafts design. The main part of the church was built in 1870 while the The Lady Chapel and north aisle belong to the same Arts & Crafts period as Hollins Hill. The chapel even has a similar curved plaster ceiling, showing how different Arts and Crafts designers often worked in similar ways. The church contains art works by William Morris, Dante Gabrielle Rosetti, Sir Edward Burne-Jones, Ford Maddox Brown and Christopher Whall.
