The Society has thousands of items in its archives, which have been collected since the early 1960s and are stored at the Mellor Parish Centre, Church Road, Mellor SK6 5LX.  A team of volunteers meets most Thursday mornings and is currently working on producing a comprehensive catalogue, which obviously will continue to expand as the collection increases.
