Be open eyed on heritage open days

Many of Stockport's best kept secrets are to be revealed this September.
On the Saturday [9 Sep 06] guided tours, led by Stockport Heritage Trust members, will take visitors through the historic Market Place and Underbanks area of Stockport.
Starting hourly from 11am at the part-medieval church of St Mary's in the Market Place, the walk will follow the ancient streets of Stockport and participants will be shown the town's former red light district, dungeon, the mysterious location of Tin Brook, ancient caves made by Stopfordians and the site of a Civil War Battle.
[See the Stockport Times for more about this and other events over heritage days 7-10 September. For an almost comprehensive list see: Stockport Heritage day.]
