Marple Local History Society Archives
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.
Browse our growing Online Digital Archive and the indices below to gain an idea of the diverse material we hold. If you would like to help with the archives or would like to arrange a visit to look at particular items, please contact Hilary Atkinson.
A ground-breaking society
Have you ever heard of a History Society being at the forefront of technology? No? Well we think we are!
We have an excellent archive of local records, photographs, maps and artefacts but to use it you had to visit the archive in person. In 2015 we began making that valuable archive accessible to anyone with an Internet connection at their fingertips.
The Marple Local History Society Digital Archive gives free access, via our website, to thousands of documents drawn from our archives collections. It is a searchable database that is easy to use and which is continually growing. It complements our collaboration with The Marple Website, which publishes our large photographic collection via its Virtual Tour of Marple.
