Geography: Stalybridge

Key points of interest in Stalybridge, Greater Manchester, England. Stalybridge takes its name from 'Staef', meaning a stave, and 'leah', which refers to a clearing in a wood, with the full meaning of 'Staley' being 'a wood where staves are collected'. This name derives from the farming and weaving that provided an income for the local villagers in the early 1700s. The 'bridge' part of the name was added in the early 19th century (“Township information – Stalybridge”, [s.d.]). QUOTATION Laurence Stephen Lowry is best known for his paintings of the industrial landscapes of Northern England, including those around Stalybridge. He states, “Most of my land and townscape is composite. Made up; part real and part imaginary [...] bits and pieces of my home locality. I don't even know I'm putting them in. They just crop up on their own, like things do in dreams." (“L.S. Lowry”, [s.d.]). SOURCES “L.S. Lowry”. [s.d.]. Wikipedia.
