Covent Garden Archaeology Open Day

Salford Archaeology will be hosting an Archaeology Open Day on Thursday 11th January between 12 noon and 2pm at Covent Garden (off Lower Hillgate), Stockport.

The Open Day will give residents the opportunity to see the ongoing archaeological works at Covent Garden, including former housing along Crowther Steps, Crowther Mill (a late 18th century silk mill) and the former Stockport Sunday School. Built in 1805 and demolished in 1971, the Sunday School was said to be the largest Sunday School in the world.

Salford Archaeology will have staff available around the site and will have information boards.

The Covent Garden area is set to be re-developed, bringing new homes into Stockport town centre.
