Stockport Dungeon Opening Times



Stockport Heritage Trust used to be key holders for the Stockport Dungeon which is owned by the Guinness Group. As we no longer hold the key, we have to apply to be allowed to open it on special occasions and one such will be the annual Classic Vehicle Show in the Market Place on Sunday 13th August.

As we have not yet got an agreement with Guinness we cannot guarantee it will be open but are hoping to be able to show people around between 10am and 4pm.

Frank Hamnett's 90th Birthday

Frank Hamnett celebrated his 90th birthday today at St. Mary's, along with his many many friends from the church, Stockport Heritage Trust and elsewhere. All tucked in to a buffet lunch that was provided, and friends old and new took the opportunity to wish Frank a happy birthday.

Frank is St. Mary's Churchwarden Emeritus, and has served the church well for a very long time!
