Merseyway Exhibition

The Merseyway 20s - 80s Exhibition is now closed.

It was a huge success, there were between 400 & 500 people a day for 7 days. These included many children, teenagers who enjoyed trying on the vintage clothes, wheel chairs and even dogs.

There was a video show of old Stockport as well as many black & white photos of the Merseyway area before and during the building of the Merseyway Shopping Centre.

We had many once familiar, everyday items some of you will remember.

The two Blue Plaque guided walks, led by Kevin Dranfield, where also popular.
Congratulations to Angela Kenrick, who planned organised and executed the whole exhibition, with assistance from members of the Trust.
If you missed the Exhibition, call in and see us at the Heritage Centre in St. Mary's Church, in the Market Place instead and see the new 20s Exhibition in there.
