Marple Hall Exhibition 1996


mlhs_marple_hall_exhibition_1996_8.jpg

In 1996 Marple Local History Society held an exhibition featuring Marple Hall that explained its history including the buildings, contents and people who created it and lived there over several hundred years. These photos cannot recreate the exhibition but do give a flavour of what was on display. Much of the information is available in the history sections of the main web site.
