Brinksway Caves - Stockport


Carved into the sandstone above the river Mersey, these are known locally as 'Maggies' caves, and I'm sure many of the local members will have cut their teeth down here

The main section comprises of seven arches, and various nooks and crannies, they are thought to date back to 1670, purpose unknown.

Stockport Heritage recently surveyed the structure and concluded the road above is in need of better foundations, and that three small caves will have to be filled to support it better. These are away from the main row of seven caves.

It had been rumored that a family had been spotted living down here at the tail end of 2011, and I did find some evidence of children's toys, coloring books etc...a sad thought :(


Visited solo on the spur of the moment​
