5086 Town Wall

SJ 8990 NE 1/206
SJ 8990 SE 2/206A


Remains of mediaeval town wall of Stockport. The most substantial section
in vicinity of rear of premises occupied by Midland Bank, Great Underbank,
consists of about 7 metres of roughly hewn red sandstone ashlar blocks, supported
by a buttress. About 0.75 metres above the top of the buttress and 1 metre
to the south along the wall there is a water spout which drains the original
rampart and cuts throng the remaining section of wall. The 2nd fragment
of wall is located to the east of Mealhouse Brow, behind Nos 9 to 13 (odd).
It is less substantial and is a collection of fragments rather than a continuous
stretch. Other fragments are said to exist to the rear of Nos 9 to 13 (odd)
Little Underbank.
