Friday Club - the Archaeology of Stockport

The Friday Club (our women's social group) is delighted to have Greater Manchester's County Archaeologist, Norman Redhead, as its speaker on Friday 8 February.

Norman will be giving an illustrated talk which will describe some of the fascinating archaeological investigations that have taken place in Stockport over recent years. These include the castle and market sites, non-conformist burial grounds, the town’s rich textile mill legacy, early workers’ housing, and even the world’s largest Sunday School!
