Haw Bank House

The 18th Century Haw Bank House used to stand on this site. An old map shows two houses on this site facing onto the junction and there was a further building, shown as a school at the back of these buildings. The present building in this position today, was renovated in the 1990s and is now used as offices.

 

A Redcap School was founded here in 1884 by Mr Cox The school was a private school for boarders and day pupils.

 

The Principle of the school died just after the end of World War 1 and Dr John Godson, a Cheadle GP offered the building, known as Cheadle House, to Mr R E Patterson if he would continue to run the school.  The Red Cap School was established at Cheadle House until 1935 when it moved to Cheadle Hulme as Ramillies Hall School.

* Cheadle House stood in Mary Street and you pass the building further on in the walk.
