Subterranean Stockport, Paperback Book

Description

Subterranean Stockport reveals a hidden world beneath the streets of Stockport - a Greater Manchester town with a rich industrial past.

It includes water tunnels from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries - excavated to supply water-powered corn and silk mills - as well as caves, culverts, sewers, icehouses, and abandoned air-raid shelters. This book documents the adventures of a group of urban explorers who have spent several years investigating and photographing underground Stockport.

With history, anecdotes, sketches, and over 100 colour photographs, Emma Brown has created a unique record of Stockport's forgotten places.
