Very grateful to Phil for private messaging me to tell me the real reason why it's so hard to visit this place - the reason is that the volunteers actually have to borrow the key so are strictly limited and would like to open it...More

It's fab here, a little small though so no good for people with issues with enclosed spaces I'm afraid! Good to see a bit of local history still here with us so go poke around!

Came across this by chance at Open Heritage weekend. We had an excellent guide who really explain well how bad the condition would be. I presume it's not open all the time as it is run by volunteers.

This attraction, on Stockport's market place, isn't always open but if you find it is then it is definitely worth sticking your nose in. It's not the biggest place, in fact I'd say it's about the size of an average living room in the main...More

This Old Dungeon was directly beneath the Court Leet magistrates court in the town. This building is steeped in the history of Stokeport with it's three dungeons. It's quite small but fascinating to visit. Go into the Stockport Heritage Centre in St. Mary's church [open...More

Not much to see but worth a visit but the local surroundings are excellent. Some opportunity to take pictures and the market next to this is worth a short browse through.
