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.

Blue Plaque unveiling

On Sunday 8 July at 3.00 pm we are unveiling a Blue Plaque to be placed on Glossop Baths in Howard Park.
The Blue Plaque records the presentation of Woods Baths and Woods Hospital on 30 July 1887 to the people of Glossop by local mill owners the Wood family.
The land which formed Howard Park was donated by Lord Howard of Glossop.
We are delighted that the Deputy Mayor and Mayoress Councillor John Walton and Mrs Ginny Priestley are to perform the unveiling and our good friends Councillors and County Councillors George and Jean Wharmby (through whom we secured the funding for the Blue Plaque) will be attending.

The event coincides with a Friends of Howard Park “Day in the Park” event.

We do hope that you will be able to join us for this latest installation of a Blue Plaque under our Blue Plaque scheme.

Summer evening walk

Continuing the theme of Howard Park, on Tuesday 10 July, at 7.30 pm Kate Raine and Tony Wright will be leading a summer evening walk round Howard Park.
This walk will describe the original creation of the Park and the gardens in it and the public buildings within it.
It will also give you an opportunity to discover where the American garden and the maze were, and where a large piece of military hardware was exhibited between the First and Second wars.
It will be entirely within the Park and we should gather outside the entrance to Woods Baths at 7.30 pm.
It is anticipated that the walk will last about one hour.
It will be appreciated that Howard Park presents some rather hilly paths and we will be walking from the Baths to the top of the Park and back down again.
