The tower has been renovated . The  result with its golden weather vane and the new clock face is now clear for all to see. An interesting story has been told about Wild Bill Hicock . It was reported that he visited the church and shot the weather vane over his shoulder ! When it was removed a bullet hole was found in it . Make your own mind up

The Friends of St.Martin group was set up in February 1985 to provide a way of enabling people who because of past association with Ashton-upon-Mersey and its church might like to give some financial support to the maintenance of the fabric of the church and churchyard.
Many visitors to the church have memories of their family connections with the area, perhaps had attended St.Martin’s day school, been baptised or married at St.Martin’s, or have relatives buried in the churchyard.
Those who subscribe as a “Friend” of St.Martin’s receive a newsletter twice a year which gives them news of what is happening in the church, repairs to the fabric etc. 
We ask for an annual subscription of £20 from those who would like to make a contribution to the upkeep of this church.
Should you wish to donate more then this would be most acceptable.
Applications for membership may be made by
e mail

Invasion of the Fans!

On Friday 11th September a group of over two dozen Canadian Coronation Street fans visited St Martin’s to view the church and churchyard. It was Kemptville Travel’s 26th Annual Coronation Street Tour to England to visit the ITV Studios and various locations used by the programme (they had already stopped at the allotments on Grosvenor Road where filming occurred earlier this year). Talking to some of those who were taking part, we discovered that they have been joined in the past by fans from Australia and New Zealand too!
