Our History

As the village of Moulton grew with the development of the salt Industry in neighbouring Winsford, it was agreed to give Moulton a church of its own.

It had previously been part of the Davenham Parish, and the church retains those historic links with Davenham as the Rector of Davenham is a formal consultee for the appointment of a vicar in Moulton.

The foundation stone of the church of St Stephen the Martyr was laid in 1876. with the consecration on 16th January 1877.
