East Markham

A village of historical character & architectural beauty

East Markham is a unique, picturesque conservation village with distinctive historical character and charm. Many properties are listed buildings dating back to the 17th century with noticeable design features that make the village one of great architectural beauty.

The Parish of East Markham is home to the Grade I listed Parish Church of St. John the Baptist, a medieval building of outstanding architectural and historical importance. It was considered to be the “Cathedral of the Tent Valley” by Sir John Betjeman. The four church bells date back to 1637 and can be heard chiming throughout the village.The village green is said to be the burial ground for victims of the plague or the final resting place of soldiers killed in Civil War battles. The green is bordered by 18th century East Markham Hall.

East Markham has a great community spirit and numerous organised events are held throughout the year. Apple Day, May Day Parade, Harvest Festival and many more are centred on the Village Hall.

Villagers take great pride in their homes; testament to this is the winning accolades such as ‘Best Kept Village ‘in recent years.
