A HER­ITAGE ex­hi­bi­tion is set to open at Charles Roe House.

The team at In­cu­ba­tion Arts are open­ing up the for­mer home of Mac­cles­field in­dus­tri­al­ist Charles Roe, who brought the silk in­dus­try to Mac­cles­field, for the new ex­hi­bi­tion in the Ch­ester­gate build­ing.

It’s been or­gan­ised as part of the Her­itage Open Days pro­ject, which takes place across the coun­try.

There will be an ex­hi­bi­tion on Charles Roe, photos of Mac­cles­field by Brian Ol­lier and visi­tors will also be able to en­joy the on­go­ing dis­play of Joy Di­vi­sion pho­to­graphs by Martin O Neill.

A new se­lec­tion of wood carv­ings from the old Mac­cles­field School of Carv­ing, from around 1850 to the early 1900s, will also go on dis­play, in­clud­ing fur­ni­ture, pic­ture frames and clocks.

Also tak­ing place is a ‘Lus­tre’ art ex­hi­bi­tion by Art­sXs­tra and guests.

Julie Hamer, from In­cu­ba­tion Arts, said: “We’ve re­ally en­joyed bring­ing ev­ery­thing to­gether and set­ting out a dis­play for the School of Carv­ing.

“This is a set of her­itage ex­hi­bi­tions for Mac­cles­field to be proud of.”

Charles Roe House is open 11am to 4pm, Tues­day to Sun­day, from Septem­ber 10 to Oc­to­ber 4.
