Current Projects

Garden of Contemplation

Didsbury community organisations and local councillors are raising funds for a new Garden of Contemplation in the surrounding grounds at the Cenotaph. The designs are now available to view Public Consultation – Garden of Contemplation.

Situated in the heart of the village next to Didsbury Library, the war memorial is the focal point for the community every year on Remembrance Sunday. The monument is currently fenced in and over recent years the surrounding area has become scruffy and unkempt, overtaken by laurels and other invasive species. The website about the project can be accessed here.

Photos and films of old and new Didsbury

We are in the process of adding an archive of Didsbury photos, dating back to the late 1800s. We are also making new films on the heritage of Didsbury, starting with the St James & Emmanuel Church. These can be viewed here. We are also planning to preserve the ghost sign at Costa Coffee (pictured). Read more.
