Pump abstracting water from the River Trent at the end of Littleborough Lane.  

Local signage, part of the Marton Village Heritage Trail, states that :- 

"The river used to be much shallower and wider than it is today. The Romans first made a crossing here by building a causeway out of oak posts and rough stone slabs.

On both sides of the river was a large Roman town called Segelocum which was built in 100 - 400 AD. This town is no longer standing.

Roman coins are still found in the fields to this day.

In 1820 the river was deepened so that bigger boats could go through.

A chain ferry was built but this crashed into a barge in 1920. After that people used a rowing boat to cross the river"

'Thrilling', according to Henry Thorold¹, the tower of St. Margaret's church, Marton, has a late Saxon or early Norman tower with herringbone coursing.

The chancel arch is of similar date. The north arcade is late Norman; the south arcade is Early English.

There is a 12th century sculpture of the Crucifixion in the sanctuary north wall.

Kelly's Directory of Lincolnshire 1919 states :-

"The church of St. Margaret is an edifice of stone in various styles, consisting of chancel, with organ-chamber on the north serving also as a vestry, nave, south porch, aisles and an embattled western tower of Saxon date, restored in 1908, at a cost of about £380, and containing 3 bells:

in 1868 the church was thoroughly restored, at a cost of about £500, when the north chancel arch, which had been bricked up, was opened, the western gallery removed, the church reseated, and the principal fittings, including pulpit and prayer desk, renewed:

the bells were also rehung, and a new ringing floor laid:

the church will seat 250 persons"

"Marton Windmill used to have 4 sails. It was taken apart in 1927 as it was no longer needed. A corn warehouse and malthouse used to stand beside the windmill. It used to have two pairs of stones: one French and one Grey.

The windmill has stood there since before 1799.
