Market Signage

Stockport Heritage Trust is wholeheartedly supporting the Market Traders in their efforts to get an arch and street markers around the fringes of the Market Place in order to encourage visitors to the town to venture further than the Peel Centre and Mersey Way.

Stockport’s historic Market Place and Underbanks have a lot to offer and are sadly underused at present, but the Trust is constantly passed over when these discussions are underway and our voice and that of other stakeholder, market area retailers and St. Mary's Church, are not being listened to.

We hope that in the near future we can bring you better news.
