Underbanks restoration work

1. Rediscovering the Underbanks

‘Rediscovering the Underbanks’ is an exciting Townscape Heritage project. Since 2017, the project has transformed Stockport’s historic high street into a vibrant destination for residents and visitors.

The project has helped to:

  • restore the area’s unique buildings and street furniture
  • support local businesses
  • provide heritage skills training
  • share the history of the Underbanks with new audiences
  • bring people together through events
  • create a lively environment to live and work

‘Rediscovering the Underbanks’ is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, which aims to support communities and local businesses by investing in historic areas.
