Travel Tips for Stockport

The Tracksuit - Stockport Jellaba

by JamalMorelli

In Stockport, they are free to dress as they want - and many men choose the tracksuit. The tracksuit is the jellaba of Stockport. Many natives here feel comfy in clothes that resemble their neighbors clothes, and many youths spend their years of rebellion and nonconformism looking exactly like the youth next to them. I have a tracksuit that I wear as Stockport camouflage.

Some bars will refuse entrance to tracksuited men - which could be the beginning of a civil rights movement for tracksuiters everywhere. "First we take Stockport, then the world..."

I tried to take these pictures within 3 minutes to show the ubiquity of the Tracksuit.

Ninjas and Vicars at St Saviors Church Hall

by JamalMorelli

You teach another to turn the other cheek and then - whack! SUCKER! The cheek comes off with a tiger kick/crane pecky combo.
Saint Savior's church hall on Gladstone Street has it all. A 24 Vicar on call and an internationally known combat instructor and his team in a "friendly atmosphere" Bring it on, Savior. B.A and loose clothes.

Air Raid Shelters

by Evenith666

The Stockport Air Raid Shelters were one of very few tunnel-system shelters built for Civillians, and would often accomodate over 7,000 pople nightly. In the Manchester Blitz of December 1940, many Mancunians came down on the tram to use the Shelters. The network of tunnels is around 1.5km long, but only a small amount are open to the public, including toilets and infirmaries.

Before entering the tunnels, visitors are shown a small film informing them about Stockport life during the Blitz.

Family Tours are available at 2pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
Self-guided tours are available from 1pm to 4pm on Weekdays, from 10am untill 4pm on Saturdays and 11am untill 4pm on Sundays. The Shelters are closed on Mondays.

Entry is:
Adults: £3.95 (inc. audio guide)
ages 5-16/consessions: £2.95
Under 5's: free
Leisure Key: free

Combined Entry Ticket:
Visitors can purchase a Combined Entry Ticket for the Staircase House, Air Raid Shelters and Bramall Hall for £10 for adults and £5 for consessions and under 16's.

Bramall Hall

by Evenith666

Originally held as two seperate manors, Bramall is one of the finest Black and White timber-framed buildings. A Manor House built in the local style, the framework is constructed with Oak timbers, joined with mortice and tenon joints and held together with Oak pegs. Either wattle and daub, or lath and plaster were used to fill in the spaces between the timbers.

Around the year 1070, William the Conquerer gave both parts of the Manor to Hamon de Masci, the first Baron of Dunham Massey. Throughout the next 800 years, just three families would own the estate: the Davenports; De Bromales and Nevills.

Today, the hall is a momento to the history of these families, particularly the Davenports, who built the current house in late 14th Century.

The House and Grounds have been used for various functions, including the proclamation of George VI succeeding his brother King Edward VIII.

At the begining of their visit, visitors are shown a short, 15 minute film telling them the history of the hall, and can have either a guided tour or just wander the hall on their own.

Entry is:
Adults: £4.05* (inc. audio guide)
ages 5-16/consessions: £3.05*
Under 5's: free
Leisure Key: free

Combined Entry Ticket:
Visitors can purchase a Combined Entry Ticket for the Staircase House, Air Raid Shelters and Bramall Hall for £10 for adults and £5 for consessions and under 16's. A Group Ticket for any four people costs £25. This Combined Entry Ticket is not limited to time, i.e. you do not have to visit all three sites in a day for example.

* the prices given on the Bramall Hall website, of £3.95 and £2.95 are incorrect.

St. Mary's Parish Church

by Ines28

Dominating the market place, this church has sections dating from the 14th century, and in fact the names of rectors appear in local documents from the late 12th century onwards. It is likely that the site has been occupied by a place of worship from Norman times.
The present church's structure initially comprised a nave, tower, aisles and two chancels which were in the Decorated style of Gothic architecture.

The burial ground contains interesting grave stones, some with beautiful inscriptions.
