The Church of St Martin is a 19th-century church in Marple, Greater Manchester, England (grid reference SJ963894).

It was designed by J. D. Sedding for Maria Anne Hudson (1819–1906), who lived in nearby Brabyns Hall, and was built between 1869 and 1870. The north chapel and aisle were added later by H. Wilson, in 1895–96 and 1909 respectively. The stained glass in the windows in the chancel are by the Morris company with designs by Edward Burne-Jones, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Ford Madox Brown and William Morris. The organ from 1870 is by Henry Willis.

On 11 October 1985, it was designated a Grade II* listed building.[1][2]
