Millgate/Churchgate Crossing

As many people will now be aware the road through the Market Place will no longer be closed on Market days.

This is of great concern to members of the Heritage Trust, as being based in St. Mary's Church, on the corner of these two roads, we have seen the road getting more and more dangerous.

The Trust is now working with the Council to try and improve the situation and provide a safer means for pedestrians to cross from the church to the market.

Victorian Market

Was everyone in Stockport at the Market Place on Saturday to help celebrate the opening of the re-developed Market Hall? it certainly seemed that way.

With free entertainments and side shows for the kids, as well as roast chestnuts and mulled wine, it was a shame to miss it.
The Trust were out in force, joining the market traders in getting in the Victorian spirit.

New Window for St. Mary's

St. Mary's Church in the Market Place has a new window.

Jim Clare has been working hard over the last few months to create an effective Stained Glass Window of Richard de Vernon the first curate of St. Mary's in 1306.

Made from acrylic at a fraction of the cost of a real one, the window proudly resides in the Heritage Centre shop.
