Marple Local History Society Trips

Each year members of the Society have a choice of trips to various historical locations to choose from, the cost of which varies dependent on the destination.

Some times we leave Marple early in the morning to visit factories and mills many miles away before returning in the evening. We've been to Blackpool to climb the tower, eating fish and chips to fortify us for a trip on a tram to see the lights. We've also had an afternoon trip along the Peak Forest Canal before a buffet at the Ring o' Bells.

The replica Mellor Mill Date Stone

“They think it’s all over now”. But wait dear reader, for MLHS members it’s not over, just yet. The call of three summer evening strolls can be heard. Just as for the last four years, the third Monday evening of the month is not free, in neither May nor June nor for that matter July. Holiday and the risk missing out! A dawning realization tells us that just that merely August is free from Society activities, phew! See the further Summer Evening Strolls
