Blue Plaque unveiling

The next Blue Plaque unveiling will be on Sunday 30 June 3.00 pm Partington Theatre Club/Norfolk Square (dependent on weather).

This event is the unveiling of another plaque this time honouring Mary Alice Partington MBE, JP who in May 1916, following the unexpected death of her husband Herbert Partington, was appointed Mayor.
She served a further three years until November 1919. She was, so far as we are aware, only the second woman Mayor of an English Borough.
She continued her charitable efforts for the benefit of the town right up to her death in November 1950.
The Blue Plaque is proposed to be installed on the Norfolk Square side of the Partington Theatre Club.

Summer evening walk

Tuesday 2 July 2019 7.00 pm.
This guided walk will start at Glossop station and then go via Norfolk Street, Ellison Street, High Street East and Howard Town Mill to conclude on the Municipal Car Park.
We will look at the buildings en route and the history which they portray.

Additions to the Glossop Heritage Archives.

The Trust's volunteers have recently received a significant number of important documents which were part of the collection of the Glossop & District Historical Society (which has now merged with the Trust).
We are actively scanning and cataloguing the documents so that the originals can be properly preserved but the information they contain will still be available for research and the publication of further articles.
We have already identified important new information regarding the building of Glossop's cotton mills and dates of significant events for the town.

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.
