Chadkirk Walk

A group of intrepid explorers set out in the snow, last week, to follow the new Chadkirk Walk book, just the latest in our £2 walk series covering most of the Stockport Borough.
Meeting at the Garden Centre on Otterspool Road and ending with a nice warm meal at the Hare and Hounds helped everyone to stay thawed.
You can purchase a copy of the new book, which takes you along the new footpaths, bridge and around the Chadkirk Estate whilst learning about its history. £2 each from Stockport Heritage Centre on Bridge St. Brow, or on line via our website

Thumbs up for the Heritage Calendar

One of our satisfied customers sent us this kind feedback for the 2013 Heritage Calendar -

"Hello ! I thought you might like to know that this year's Calendar is
being enjoyed in Wellington, NZ !   Apparently it is causing much
interest, and amusement, in the Education Office wheremy daughter works.  Everyone wants to know what's of interest each day, and are
disappointed if there is nothing on their birthday dates. They could
not believe Jimi Hendrix had anything to do with this place called
Stockport. On googling him they discovered he had a connection !"

We have to thank Trust member Phil Rowbotham for all the hard work he does putting the calendar together and if members wish their pictures to be voted on for the next calendar, send them to him now.
