Heaton Norris Park
The land for this park was acquired by public subscription and as a gift from Lord Egerton. Work on laying out the site as a public park began in May 1873, and it was formally opened on June 5th 1875. The total area of the park at the time was 16 acres, 2 rods & 38 poles. During the Munich crisis of 1938 large trenches were dug in the park in preparation for possible air raids. Construction of the motorway in the 1970s took several acres away from the park. More recently the park has become the venue for the annual Stockport Civic Bonfire. LinkExternal link
