Inns & Outs of Stockport Taverns

There is a new book out by Coral Dranfield.

This book is not an index of Stockport Pubs, Coral has selected tales and anecdotes, histories and legends to construct a book that gives a social history woven around the old taverns and inns of Stockport, many of which are no longer there.

It is selling at £6 from Stockport Heritage Centre, St. Mary's Church, the Tourist Information Centre, Staircase House and Waterstones in Merseyway.

A perfect day, for a perfect day out. Marple Locks Festival picked the best of days for what was the best festival yet.

People flocked to Memorial Park Marple, to see the animals, boats and stalls. There were walks along the canal as well as rides on canal boats. Plenty of stalls provided entertainment, fun and food. Stockport Heritage were out in force and by early afternoon had sold out of 2011 calendars. It looks as if they are going to be in demand this year.

You can get yours from the heritage centre St. Mary's Church, Market Place and they will also be on the heritage stall at Chadkirk on 30th & 31st July.

Thank you to the organisers for a well run event.
