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.

I've lived here for years and have often wanted to visit the Old Town Dungeon & Court House but it's always shut and on the very rare occasions it's been open, I've found out too late to go! Massive missed opportunity - this place could...More

I had to wait for months for this to be open. It's only open a few times a year & I highly recommend it. Although best to find when its open.

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

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.
