21st November 2016 : 'A History of New Mills Railways' -  Derek Brumhead


‘The railway was opened to the public on Saturday last, July 1st. Great numbers of people assembled at New Mills terminus to witness the arrival and departure of the trains. The distance between New Mills and Marple is commonly called ‘a good hour’s walk’, but it is now easily accomplished by ‘Puffin Billy’ in seventeen minutes. Great taste has been displayed, and the comfort of the passengers studied, in the erection of the station house.’ This was how The Glossop Record reported the exciting news of the New Mills Central Station opening on Saturday 8th July 1865.
Derek Brumhead, a friend of the Society, will reveal the history of New Mills railways in this month’s talk.

Marple Methodists Church, doors open 7.15pm, meeting commences at 7.45pm.

Saint Martin's Church is an Anglican church following the traditions of the Anglo-Catholic Oxford Movement. It was established in 1867 by Mrs Hudson, the lady of Brabyns Hall. Built during the Arts and Crafts era and extended in the Art Nouveau period the church contains works by William Morris, Dante Gabrielle Rosetti, Sir Edward Burne-Jones and Ford Maddox Browne. The Architect was John Dando Sedding. Later extensions feature the work of architect Henry Wilson and includes works by Christopher Whall.
