Open Cards

Following on from the success of our first set of postcards we introduced a range of eight open cards showing that the canals are not Marple's only asset. Later we added a further four open cards to the range, taking the total number of designs to twelve. The cards are all blank inside, so they can be used for any purpose, and feature photographs of local attractions. In addition to canal scenes there are pictures of Roman Bridge, Oldknow's Shuttle Stone, Mellor Church, Brabyns Lodge, the Keg Pool at Compstall, Hilltop Farm, Roman Lakes and Marple Bridge.

To take a closer look at the designs click on the thumbnails below and scan through larger images of the cards using our lightbox style display.
