Glossop Soldiers

Some of the Trust's volunteers are engaged in a project which will result in details of WW1 soldiers being added to our website.
We would be grateful for any stories or details which people may have so that we can enhance the information already held in our archive.

Railway Events

On Saturday November 3, special Armistice Day celebrations will be held at four railway stations on the Glossop Line: Glossop, Hadfield, Hattersley and Guide Bridge.

A small group of soldiers will arrive and depart from each of the stations by train with a different celebration at each station starting with a happy send off and then more sombre reflections.
Young musicians from Chethams' School of Music in Manchester, under the direction of John LeGrove, will perform music from the time period at Glossop Station.

Each session at the individual stations will last about 30 minutes and anyone is welcome to attend.
The event begins at Guide Bridge at 9.15am, arriving at Hattersley at 9.38am. Arrival at Glossop is 10.30am and Hadfield 11am.

If you have details of any upcoming events in connection with the Glossop Armistice Commemorations, please send them to us.
We will add them to this page and publicise them on our Facebook page.

Appeal for photographs.

Glossop Heritage Trust has been publishing calendars containing old and new local views since 2003.

After so long, we are exhausting our stock of suitable photographs.

We are, therefore, appealing for donations of photographs, of any age, from anyone who would like to help us.

Ideally we prefer to avoid the inclusion, in full shot, of people, cars, street furniture and overhead wires.
In the present day we understand that this is difficult to achieve but we will consider images which have had such features removed using a program such as Photoshop.

We like to match photos to the month, reflecting all four seasons, and to include the area's Parks, Norfolk Square and other much loved landmarks.

If you can help please send your photos by e-mail using This Link.

We can not guarantee to use all photos received but will be grateful for all donations.
