Canal Trip

Eighteen brave Heritage Trust members set out on Wed 20th May, to conquer the Ashton to Marple canal, with the aid of two comfortable barges.

After much sunbathing, eating, drinking and considerable laughter, they arrived safely back at base, with no undue signs of fatigue.

The trip had been book up in the first week and a cry for more went up from the heroes after a very enjoyable day.

Thank you to Kevin Dranfield for organising the outing, and how about doing it again next year?

Heaton Moor Historical Society

Heaton Moor Historical Society

On Wednesday the 10th June we are having an evening walk around part of the Heaton Moor Conservation Area.
We'll meet at the Plough as usual at 7 pm. This will be a wheelchair-friendly flat circular 1½ mile stroll which will take about an hour.

On Wednesday 22nd July our guest speaker will be Jim Clare, the chairman of the Stockport Heritage Trust. His illustrated talk will be on St. Mary's Parish Church in the Marketplace. He will also tell us about the legacy of the Rector Richard de Vernon, who built part of the existing sand stone church, the chancel and the oratory, between 1306 and 1334.

Best wishes,
