About Marple Local History Society

The Society was formed in 1961, following almost a decade of interest in local history matters. Originally called The Marple Antiquarian Society, it changed its name to The Marple Local History Society in 1990. The Society is a Registered Charity, 500099.

The Society is dedicated to the recording of the past and present of Marple – including Mellor, Compstall, Marple Bridge, Strines, Rose Hill, Hawk Green and High Lane.

We hold monthly meetings between September and April with speakers giving talks on subjects both local and from a wider area. Several field trips are held each year, usually with a connection to one or more of the talks.

The Society holds extensive archives of local and regional interest and is constantly adding to them. The majority of artefacts in the archives are given to the Society by local people but we also receive items from descendants living across the world.

We aim to preserve and protect these items and provide information to both local and wider communities. The archives are stored at Mellor Parish Centre, Church Road, Mellor SK6 5LX.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
