2. Remains of mediaeval town wall of Stockport. The most substantial section in vicinity of rear of premises occupied by Midland Bank, Great Underbank, consists of about 7 metres of roughly hewn red sandstone ashlar blocks, supported by a buttress. About 0.75 metres above the top of the buttress and 1 metre to the south along the wall there is a water spout which drains the original rampart and cuts throng the remaining section of wall. The 2nd fragment of wall is located to the east of Mealhouse Brow, behind Nos 9 to 13 (odd). It is less substantial and is a collection of fragments rather than a continuous stretch. Other fragments are said to exist to the rear of Nos 9 to 13 (odd) Little Underbank.
