Welcome to Martley
Martley consists of a thriving community of approximately 1200 people 8 miles west of Worcester with local employers, shops, pub, a Post Office and other amenities.

Martley is at the heart of the rural West Midlands and you will find all that you might expect: beautiful countryside, half timbered houses, an ancient Norman church and equally ancient trees, rural crafts, historical sites, wonderful walks. Most of the parish is given over to mixed agriculture these days, but formerly there were cherry, apple, damson orchards and hopyards. Close by is the scenic valley of the River Teme, a substantial tributary of the longest river in Great Britain, the River Severn, and Worcester, famous for its connections with the English Civil War, the river Severn, and its former manufacturing of porcelain and gloves.

The local community is well served with a village shop, post office, garage, leisure centre, recreational land and library all available. There are also excellent schools for all age ranges. Try the superb well maintained footpaths to access the beautiful countryside that typifies Martley Parish. The village is situated on a loop of the Worcestershire Way and the area is part of the Abberley and Malvern Hills Geopark.
