Vernon Park is 150 Years Old

The Trust is always there to help promote Stockport's Heritage, and what better place to be than Vernon Park on a beautiful Sunday, to celebrate 150years of the park.

Even the Worshipful Mayor Councillor Pam King joined in the fun as she tried to fell the knight with bow and arrows, and the Trust's new 'Roll a Penny' game was also a great success.

Thousands turned out for a day in the sun, with Bands, Morris Dancers, Ferret Racing and many other entertainments.

Heritage Open Days

This year's Heritage Open Days were packed with things to do, and the nice weather brought people out in number.

The Trust offered more than ever before, with walks, talks and a film show, at St. Peter's as well as St. Mary's in the Market Place.

If you missed a chance to go on one of our free guided walks, it is not too late. As part of the Stockport's Food and Drink Festival in October Kevin Dranfield will be taking two parties around a new walk, looking at the History of Food and Drink in Stockport.

Do you know were the Mustard Factory was, or why there were no fish shops in the town before 1830?

4th & 11th Oct. at 1pm book your place now with the Tourist Information Office.
