Welcome to Mellor Centre

Venue for Hire in Mellor, Stockport.

Built as a school in 1880, with a foundation stone laid by Richard Arkwright of the famous textile family, our Centre educated the children of Mellor for 115 years until 1995, when a new school was built down the hill on Knowle Road. This gave the Parish Church Council an excellent opportunity to create the thriving and busy Centre for the whole community which exists today. Creative renovation works brought the interior up to modern standards whilst retaining the best original Victorian features.

It is an excellent working environment for conferences and meetings, quiet, with a choice of light, airy rooms. It is also a beautiful place for a celebration, with spectacular views all around.

Please contact a member of the team for any enquiries.
