Greater Manchester Reports

Mellor, Greater Manchester

Review of Mellor by dave zazzi on June 7th, 2011
Mellor is to be found on the edge of the Peak District National Park and originally was in the County of Derbyshire, in 1936 it was transferred to Cheshire and then in 1974 it became part of Stockport Metropolitan where it is today. Evidence of Bronze Age and Roman settlements have been found next to Mellor Church and it is thought that a Roman villa is located under the church. The structure of the village of Mellor is mainly ribbon development starting at Longhurst Lane and as the road makes its way up the hill it meets Church Lane and continues onto Moor End Road where most of the older part of the village is to be found. On Moor End Road is one of the older buildings in the village that is in public use, dating back to 1700 the Oddfellows Society used to meet there in the 1860ís. The most striking feature of the village though is its church, St Thomasí stands aloof of the village (some 760 feet above sea level) dominating the hill and providing splendid views of the surrounding countryside. Lying around seven miles from the busy metropolitan town of Stockport with Manchester easily accessible the residents of Mellor can enjoy the benefits of a village life and all that it has to offer.
