More photos showing progress on the Chadkirk Bridge, the bridleway through Marple Dale Wood and the Hydro Power Generator at Otterspool Bridge have been added to the Virtual Tour this morning.

Thanks are due to Bill Beard, Axel Thomas and Arthur Procter for these.

The Virtual Tour has been updated this morning with some photos taken at last weekend's opening of the Mellor Mill Wheel Pit by Bill Beard and Arthur Procter, plus some from Arthur of the ongoing works at Marple Station.

Wheel Pit: http://visitmarple.co.uk/photos/thumbnails.php?album=121
Station: http://visitmarple.co.uk/photos/thumbnails.php?album=lastup&cat=-23

Also four vintage gems provided by Heather Plevin (nee Hines), who is David Myers' auntie, have been added. Heather lived at Flood Gates Cottage between 1939 and 1954 and can be seen rowing her elder brothers on Roman Lakes in one of the photos.

Do you, your parents, grandparents, aunties or uncles have any wonderful shots like this tucked away in a drawer or the loft. If so, please share them with us:

Before anyone else is up (in our house) I've managed to create a new album to cover Albert Schools and add several new images from Marple Local History Society's archives and move all existing images into the same location.

Several photos from a Marple Local History Society folder of All Saints' School have been uploaded to the Virtual Tour this morning and a new album has been created to hold all the All Saints' School photos.

http://visitmarple.co.uk/photos/thumbnails.php?album=lastup&cat=26

I'm not convinced that one of the photos isn't the Albert School that has been misfiled. Does anyone know?

Photos from a folder in Marple Local History Society Archives entitled "Schools - Miscellany" have been added to the Virtual Tour this morning - a couple of small mysteries you may be able to solve.

Plus a picture of George Pegg's children on Stockport Road provided by Anne McKay.

Another of the Marple Local History Society videos featuring local people talking about their memories has been uploaded to the Virtual Tour. This one is of Trixie Gough, who was born in 1914 and lived in the cottages next to the Jolly Sailor. She is talking to Gordon Mills in 2004 as he filmed her.

The 37 minute long VHS video has been converted to digital format and uploaded in four segments to make it easier for visitors to view without having to start at the beginning every time.

Here's the link: http://visitmarple.co.uk/photos/thumbnails.php?album=117

A variety of photos of Marple UDC and Memorial Park from Marple Local History Society Archives have been added to the Virtual Tour this evening. I still need to add comments to some of them - hopefully tomorrow.
