Stockport Heritage Trust formed in 1986 and became a registered charity (no. 700124) the following year.
We have a small Heritage Centre in St. Mary’s Parish Church on the Market Place, which houses our large local picture collection, shop and advice from volunteers if we can help. If not, we’ll try to point in the right direction to someone who can.
We also provide exhibitions, talks, walks around the Borough, and published research projects.

(also on the Market Place) from demolition. After many years of hard work by Trust
members, Stockport Council took on the project, resulting in the award-
Having raised money over the years for Staircase House, we were delighted to provide a handcarved tester bed, now on display.
To compliment this, we also funded the establishment of a local group of embroiderers
