Our readers share their photos of a pretty village just south of Manchester.

Styal is close to Manchester Airport and much of the village we see today was built by industrialist Samuel Greg to house the workers of Quarry Bank Mill.

Water is an important feature of Styal with the River Bollin and the Bridgewater Canal providing both power and transport links to the textile mill.

Quarry Bank Mill and the surrounding country park are now owned by The National Trust and walking around the village you can still take a snapshot of the era from which the village and mill originated from.

The gardens in Quarry Bank Mill are extensive, with plenty for the horticulturist to enjoy. Further afield, the Northern and Southern Woods are great for walking and wildlife, and there’s even a mini stonehenge on the estate grounds.

Why don’t you upload your images of Styal to the reader photo gallery?
