A mixed bag of 24 images provided by local postcard collector Janet Holmes have been uploaded to the Virtual Tour this morning. Janet has kindly made her full collection available and more will be uploaded over the coming weeks / months. It's also pleasing to note that we have now passed 2.5 Million image views on the tour and with Janet's help will soon have 10,000+ images on-line.

Ten images from Marple Local History Society Archives have been added to the Virtual Tour this morning.

They mostly relate to St Mary's RC Church, Marple Bridge between around 1909 and late 1920s.

Where was Jessie Field?

I believe Jessie Field was originally part of the Nab Wood Farm estate, see this Genes Reunited link.

I don't have a subscription to Genes Reunited but the public text reads as below
Chester Chronicle Cheshire, England 5 Sep 1863
Bnbtnit to SALE by PTJBLIC AUCTION, at the Warren Bulkeley Arms Inn, iv Stockport, on Friday, tbe 25th day of
LOT 11. A piece of very superior LAND, admirably adapted for building upon, being part of tbe said Nab Estate, called tbe Jessie Field, containing 2a. Or. 2Sp.. having a very considerable frontage to tbe said turnpike-road, and overlooking the Chadkirk


And looking at old maps it does indeed show Jessiefield as being quite close to Nab Estate.
