St Martin Hayton

St Martin's Church is a grade 1 listed building. In 2002 we were awarded an English heritage grant which allowed us to repair the tower and external stone work. We were able to repair the third bell which had been stored in the church for 96 years and re-hung it.

Bell ringers come from North Cave twice a month at the beginning of the service to ring the bells. We also accommodate any visiting bell ringers on request.

We hold services on two of the major festivals: Easter Sunday and Harvest Festival, the latter is followed by refreshments.

The Flower Festival and scarecrow events held with the village hall, see various floral arrangers put their talent into action! The scarecrows are placed throughout the village.

On the Friday of the Festival we hold a preview evening in Church for which we sell tickets and serve a light supper with musical entertainment. Each year there is a different theme - last year it was cartoon characters.
