The Railways

This album covers both Marple Railway Station and Rose Hill Station as we do not yet have enough pictures to split them into separate albums. If you can help with more photographs of either station, please get in touch.

The Lime Kilns


picture_80.JPG

Little of Samuel Oldknow's Lime Kilns remain today and it is difficult to imagine the scale and impact that these early industrial buildings had on Marple's landscape. The images in this album will help to give some idea. Click here to read more about the Lime Kilns.

Dan Bank and Dooley Lane Area


picture_17.jpg

This album covers the Dan Bank and Dooley Lane area, including Otterspool, Chadkirk and as far up as Bunker's Hill. You could claim that some of this is not strictly Marple but then you'd be missing out on some great photos.

Marple from the Air


air10.jpg

These images of Marple from the air were taken between 1955 and the early 1960s. They can be dated by the Hollins Mill, still there in 1955 but demolished in 1957, and Hollins Parade and Hanburys being built in the late 50s or early 60s. The photos are from Marple Local History Society's Archives.

Miscellaneous


picture_60.JPG

This album is home to all those pictures of the Marple area where we currently don't have quite enough to create separate albums. Areas such as Hibbert Lane, Chadwick Street, Stone Row, Cross Lane and Hollins Mill, to name just a few. There are also a several from outside the area that we couldn't bring ourselves to discard.
