     St Elisabeths Church (spelling is with an S not a Z). Local mill-owner Sir William Houldsworth commissioned Alfred Waterhouse in the 1870s. Construction took place between 1881 and 1883, paid for entirely by Houldsworth,with consecration in 1883. The church was named after Houldsworth's wife. The nearby canal was used to bring in heavy stones, and the church says that elephants borrowed from nearby Belle Vue zoo assisted in moving the heavy stonework to the building site.

     Reddish South Station. To the bottom is Stockport, above the line runs to Stalybridge. Notoriety comes from the station have ONE train PER WEEK, normally a Friday morning service from Stockport to Stalybridge. There is no return service. It has a certain popularity from its rareness, and the destination station Stalybridge which has a real ale bar on the platform. The old station buffet was once famous for its black peas (carlin or pigeon peas), but since a change of ownership these have come to be unavailable more often than not and cannot be relied upon.
