The Wharf Marple Project
February 2021: FUNDING TARGET REACHED!
Here's the latest news from the Wharf Marple Project Team:
The Wharf Marple CIC is very pleased to announce that we are now in a position to go ahead and buy the Warehouse building from CRT.
It is thanks to you, our Investors who have pledged to buy a stake in, what is quite possibly, Marple’s most important and exciting community project, that we have reached this first important milestone.
A group of some 28 members of Marple Local History Society visited the disused Manchester Mayfield Station on Friday afternoon, February 22nd led by Blue Badge Guide, Jonathan Schofield. He explained that it had been built in 1910 by the London and North Western Railway Company alongside London Road, now Piccadilly Station to relieve the extra pressure on the existing London Road platforms caused by the opening of the Styal Line in 1909. Mayfield Station was connected to London Road Station by an overhead footbridge.
