East Cheshire Association

Quarry Bank Mill from Upper Garden

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

What we get up to

We run a full and varied annual programme of outings, talks, walks, holidays and special events, such as lunches, for the benefit of our approx. 300 members.  The programme enables us to raise money to support the National Trust and particularly our local properties including Lyme and Quarry Bank.  Members receive a quarterly newsletter by post or e-mail, detailing up-coming events and how to apply.

Talks are on the second Tuesday of the month, September to April, at 2pm at the Brookdale Club, Bridge Lane, Bramhall, Stockport, SK7 3AB; this has a large free car park at the rear of the building. It's on a bus route and about ¾ mile from Bramhall station.

Walks usually of 4-5miles are normally the third Saturday of the month and are often followed by a pub lunch. 

Outings are normally on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, and are by coach, with pick up points in Bramhall and Hazel Grove, or occasionally self-drive.

Holidays are organised in conjunction with a local coach company and are fully insured.


Our membership year, which runs from January to December, is £10 per person or £15 per household.  There is a £5 supplement to receive the newsletter by post.  New members who apply on or after 1st September receive membership through to 31st December of the following year.
