The additions feature many interior shots previously unseen and including the often described John Bradshawe oak bed with carved mottos and the magnificent staircase long before the roof fell in.

Some more images from Marple Local History Society's "Mellor" folders uploaded this morning. These include some great photos of Mellor Lodge. What a great shame Samuel Oldknow's home didn't survive.

It's definitely Mellor rec - you can tell from the houses in Gibb Lane, on the far right of the picture. 

Thanks Dave and Amazon - I've moved and re-captioned the image.

No that's not Marple Bridge. Used to be one back of Lower Fold Windsor Castle but it's not this one.

Including Craven (Mr?) who used to own it in the 1900s. Anyone know more about him?

Also there is a postcard labelled on the card itself as Marple Bridge Recreation Ground. It looks like the one in Mellor to me. Was / is there a Marple Bridge Rec?

Another 30 images from the MLHS archives have been added to the Virtual Tour this afternoon, mostly of Mellor / Moor End.

http://visitmarple.co.uk/photos/thumbnails.php?album=lastup&cat=0

There's one annotated on the back as the "Miners Arms", which, according to Jack Turnbull's "Last Orders Please" was once at Moor End in Mellor. However, the sign over the door says the "Jordan Arms" and the landlord was William Butler. A bit of surfing suggests that this was in New Mills - can anyone confirm?

A selection of images from Marple Local History Society Archives relating to Roman Lakes and Samuel Oldknow have been added to the Tour this morning.

http://visitmarple.co.uk/photos/thumbnails.php?album=lastup&cat=0

These include a Seasonal Greeting Card made by local historian Arthur Hulme and sent to one of his fellow Antiquarian Society members.



The archives also identified that the chap sat on Oldknow's Seat in this image already on the tour is the same Arthur Hulme.
