Long Description:
"St.Nicholas Church,Marston Trussell was originally built in 13th centry in sandstone. The site is believed to date back to Roman times. The tower, 71 feet high,was built about 1525 and has 5 bells now rung by 1 man and 4 women. The porch is made from oak possibly part of a Danish Ship. Part of the nearby castle was also used,only the moat and mound can still be seen. There have been 35 priests since the church was built. There has been only one christening in the last 5 years.

At the Battle of Naseby King Charles' Cavaliers made their last stand against Cromwell's men and were defeated. The ones that broke away from the battle retreated towards Leicester but many were cornered at 'Pudding Poke Marston', slaughtered and buried near the church yard."
