    Heaton Chapel Reform Club - Heaton Moor, Stockport

    On January 8th 1887 members of the Heaton Chapel and District Liberal Club
    walked in procession from their old premises to a brand new purpose-built club.

    Built in 1886-7, by Alfred Darbyshire, who won the design competition and who
    was also responsible for Heaton Moor Congregational Church. The rear portion
    of the building was added in 1906 with a grand bazaar the following year raising
    nearly £1,600. Odd and asymmetrical with a triple entrance arcade, offset square
    oriel rising above eaves level,*and an octagonal turret with a conical roof.

    In addition to housing gentlemen of a Liberal persuasion the new building was to be
    the setting for many glittering social events held in the "Reform Hall", the upper hall
    of what is now known as Heaton Chapel Reform Club, even though it is in Heaton Moor.
