East Cheshire Association

Quarry Bank Mill from Upper Garden

The East Cheshire National Trust Association was formed in 1986 and welcomes National Trust members and volunteers from the Stockport and east Cheshire area.

We run a full and varied annual programme of Outings, Lectures, Walks, Holidays and special events such as lunches and theatre outings each year for the benefit of our c400 members.

Members receive a quarterly newsletter by post or e-mail, and this details up-coming events and how to apply.

Our programme enables us to raise money to support the National Trust and particularly local properties including Lyme Park and Quarry Bank.  In 2018 we have given £3500 to

  • Dunham Massey - for garden benches

  • Hare Hill – support the replanting of its ponds

  • Little Moreton Hall - for the house rewiring project

  • Lyme Park – for the Youth Rangers project

  • Quarry Bank - for planting around the war memorial at Styal Village

  • Rufford Old Hall – to research and archive the Philip Ashcroft Collection of artefacts of rural life.

Here is our programme of forthcoming events for the next six months – we hope it will encourage you to join us.
