A brown plaque is to be put on the building at the Heritage Open weekend in September.

The history group that I attend are researching the old Mechanics Institution / Heginbottom School building on the corner of Church Street and Warrington Street.

We would be pleased to hear any memories of the building that you may have.

Do you have any family stories from when it was used as a Military Hospital in WW1?

Did you attend Heginbottom Girls School?

Did you work there?

Did you do an Adult Learning course when Tameside used the building in the 70s, 80s and 90s?


Thanks

Heather
