You cannot believe this house is in the centre of Stockport. It is like going back in time! One hours visit stretched into three. No ropes to stop investigating things.

Very interesting place for the young and the not so young. Full of lots of local history, we have been lots of times with different people and still find it a good way to spend time friends and learn about Stockport.
