Welcome to the Story of Alderley Edge
This website is dedicated to the landscape and people of Alderley Edge. Here you will find the many stories that make up Alderley Edge and a growing store of information on the Edge’s geology, mines, archaeology, plants and wildlife, geography, history, legends and literature.

Behind these stories are the complex data of the Alderley Archive, including rare maps, original documents, old photographs and a unique sound archive.

Teachers will find detailed schemes of work in the Learning Section above.
