Rivers Under Your Feet

Rivers Under Your FeetNow available at the Heritage Centre is a fascinating book about the water tunnels beneath Stockport. Written by Coral Dranfield it reveals the findings of the research done by her and the Trust to uncover Underground Stockport. This 44 page book goes a long way to explaining the rapid growth of Stockport in Industrial Revolution. Some of these tunnels remain important to this day, carrying power and utilities to business and residences in Stockport.

The launch of this book will be followed by the related Underground Stockport exhibition at the Stockport Story, in February and March.

Meanwhile, buy your copy for £4.50 at the Heritage Center, St Mary's, The Marketplace.
