Written by Donald based on his lecture which he gave to Society in February 2012.

Thirty nine interesting sights and curiosities across Cheshire are described in the book, ranging from the well-known (Chester City Walls) to the unusual (Elephant & Castle statue) and the frankly bizarre (Old Maggotty).

Plenty of ideas for a host of fascinating days out.

About the Society

The Society was formed in 1961, following almost a decade of interest in local history matters. Originally called The Marple Antiquarian Society, it changed its name to The Marple Local History Society in 1990. The Society is a Registered Charity, 500099.

Monthly meetings are held between September and April, several field trips are made each year. The society publishes a range of publications, has an active archive session on Thursday mornings, and organises occasional exhibitions. More details here.
