Parish Church East Markham is a rural village in North Nottinghamshire. It lies approximately 7 miles (11km) south of Retford. The A1, the A57, and the East Coast Main Line railway pass close to the village on different sides.

The parish church of St John the Baptist is a striking architectural landmark. The church, now more than 600 years old, is regarded as one of the finest examples of its period.

The village was once a major apple growing centre supported by farming and some light industry. The number of orchards and businesses is now much reduced and the village is predominantly residential. However, some orchards remain and the village celebrates its history with the annual Apple Day held on the first Sunday in October each year.

Two major cycle routes pass through East Markham. These are the National Byway and National Cycle Route 647 (Clumber Park to Harby). The latter connects with National Cycle Route 64 (Harby to Lincoln). There is a network of more than 20 footpaths in and around the village.

If you choose to visit East Markham, we hope that you enjoy your time here.
