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.
