What a shame that this beautiful building was demolished. Well done Stockport waterworks committee! Think of what a great attraction this would have been today if kept in its original state.

I wholeheartedly agree with Sue. The Grimshaw family all came to worship at The Sacred Heart Church in Whaley Bridge. A neighbour of ours on Jodrell Meadow used to live in the cottages as a child as her father worked for the Grimshaws. These cottages were later demolished to make way for the reservoir. What a wonderful sight it was when walking up to the Hall when all the rhodedandrums were out.

We used to walk to Errwood hall often as children. Had it not fallen into disrepair there wouldn't have been the filter house as it was built from the stone - re-cycling even then. Our house was also built from it. Must admit the old photo is lovely though. Can't preserve everything.

Hello Patricia,

If you type the words 'filter house' into the search box you will find many photos of that building including the filters inside.

It really is a sad sight these days.

I was never told that Errwood stone was used in the construction but there was some nice stone features so maybe it was.

Your house, one of a pair of stone cottages, was undoubtedly built form stone from the Hall and the window frames in the two cottages were also used.

I presume your Dad was Harold? But I can't remember the full name of your neighbour except he was called John. Do you know what became of him?
