At our last open meeting our favourite local historian, Audrey Butler took us on a literary stroll of the history of Heaton Mersey – from when the bleachworks opened up to modern day Heaton Mersey. It was an informative evening and good to hear from local residents their recollections of past Heaton Mersey.
HMVCG’s has produced a self guided Heritage Walk so that you can take your own stroll around the village and find out more about the history of this area. Information about this is given here. Free copies can be collected from Joules Estate Agents, 464 Didsbury Road, Heaton Mersey.
Another source of historical information is the Heaton Mersey Village Appraisal document published by Stockport Council. Click here to go to it on the council’s website.
We are currently busy working on producing a Heaton Mersey history page to go on our website.
