The Gallery was built as a gift to the town of Stalybridge in 1901. The Library houses the largest collection in Tameside of books, records, documents and maps for the study of the area's history and family ancestry. A wide range of publications are for sale.

Stamford Park and Boating Lake

The Park was opened in July 1873. At first the Park was managed by trustees but was handed over to the two town councils of Stalybridge and Ashton in 1891. Stamford Park was greatly enlarged in 1892 and the boating lake was formed. Take a trip on the boating lake, stroll around the park and the dingle, have a game of crazy golf, visit the arboretum, let the children feed the ducks at the duck pond, or just paddle in the paddling pool! A great day out for all the family!
