    Visited the small but surprisingly well laid out museum, I knew nothing about the museum other than it was free, I am always interested in free things. I was really surprised to find there were mock ups of local places as well as facts about the canal on which it stands. It was very quiet and apart from one school party we were pretty much the only people in there
    Outside near the canal could do with some tidying up as it looked a bit neglected, there is a cafe but we did not use it.
    Overall a good place to spend an hour or two and even better with being free

    It is a very beautiful park with jungle area for hiking. Children's play area is nice and safe. I really enjoyed the visit with my family.

    A fun day out with some lovely little watering holes. Bars can get busy as everyone arrives at a similar time. Pace yourself and have fun with friends.

    It used to be the estate of local notables and was given to the town as a park. It's a pleasant mix of wild waterside strolls, old woodland and open spaces, with great children's play areas.

    We were fortunate to make our first visit to the park on a beautiful day. I would definitely recommend this to dog walkers.

    On a beautiful day you can see for miles and the dog walks are really good.

    As soon as you enter the Square, you feel transported back in time, use to walk through here as a kid on the way home from school 50+ years ago, and luckily I only live a mile away, nothing’s changed, only more cars parked up. Well worth a visit, but remember people live here, so be quiet and respectful, also don’t drive into the square ( protect the old cobbles) park somewhere nearer and walk there. Don’t forget your camera.

    Great views of Tameside and Manchester and a lovely walk … recommend if it’s a clear or sunny day! Short train journey from the city and a fab walk.

    St Georges, Stalybridge is within the Manchester Diocese, and during the current interregnum is being excellently managed by The Wardens and many other members of the Congregation. They have a very strong Choir and at the moment are raising funds to restore the historic Renn Organ ably played by Chris Anderson The Director of Music.

    We visited to pick up a picnic lunch. We were really amazed at the quality of the products. Eventually decided on fresh veggie quiche and the most delicious ginger cake, together with a coffee each. The coffee was definitely not bland, as per a previous old post.

    We browsed the plants, prior to our purchase, and were pleasantly surprised. Considering they were probably mobbed after the lockdown, they still had a reasonable amount of quality stock.

    Lastly, the staff, who were friendly and appeared to genuinely want to provide a service.

    We look forward to another visit soon, when the cafe is open.

    Visited today with my 7m old baby. Wasn’t expecting to cater to her needs specifically with her being so young, but I did expect a few more animals at a farm. They have lots of goats, a pen of pigs, 2 alpacas and 2 reindeer ( indoor for petting) They have a field of sheep, an owl and various fowl, a duck pond and some donkeys and ponies too. Then the cuddle corner with rabbits etc.

    There is lots of other activities that an older child would enjoy - play areas, carousel, snow slide, tractor rides etc.

    I think overall, it’s a nice day out but is overpriced even for an older child.

    The baby changing tables are filthy though ( like engrained dirt and filth in the hinges etc, not just like someone inconsiderate had used them and not cleaned up after themselves. I didn’t use them and changed baby in the boot of my car they were so bad.

    Staff were all friendly and there was absolutely loads of them to supervise goings on.

    I love this library. There are generous reading areas, a separate quiet room, a large range of titles to select from and ever helpful staff.

    Open+ membership is free with your library card, please visit the library during staffed hours to receive more details...being an Open+ member means you can access Tameside libraries during open but unstaffed hours.

    The building itself is a beautiful example of 1800's architecture both inside and out. Look for period features when you visit - they are especially obvious on the grand staircase leading up to the Cheetham's-Astley gallery.

    I haven't been here in so long,that I had pop down & refresh my memory.
    After passing a few days earlier & now on my own,I was in the area again, do decided to take a look.
    Being a Wednesday & cold,the place was quiet,just a couple of people off for a walk,I went for a look around,taking in &, trying to imagine what life would have been like,noise,smells,how busy the place would have been,now almost lost in the undergrowth.
    I didn't take any of the trails,I guess on a warmer day it's a great place to explore.

    The place looks quite run down and tired looking. The upstairs party room is quite shabby, and when the child has a party there, the food is taken up and placed, but by the time the children go up to eat, the food has gone cold.
    The biggest let-down is the car park, which is full of potholes. Not bad if the weather is dry, but when it rains cars have to duck and dive to avoid them

    My self and my daughter went here for a child's birthday party. Staff seemed friendly enough and helped the kids get their skates on. They even slowed down my daughters skates as they were a little too fast for her. The kids seemed to really enjoy it!
