LThere are a number of local places of interest in Disley as well as many listed buildings. The centre of the village and parts of Higher Disley have been designated as conservation areas so that any changes have to be in keeping with the appearance and character of the area. The Ram’s Head in the centre of the village is said to have been established in the mid 17th century as a coaching inn. The present building dates from 1840-41 when it was an important inn on the route between Manchester and Buxton. Some of the extensive stabling is still to be seen at the side of the car-park. In front of the building, there is a mounting block to help riders get into the saddle or even into or out of the coach. The Fountain, standing in the centre of Fountain Square, was presented to the village by the Orford family in 1834. Water was collected from the hillside near the parish church and piped into the fountain, where it was stored in a lead tank at the top. The three arm bracket light fitting was added in 1999, replacing an earlier light, as a permanent memorial to the Millennium. Just outside the railings, surrounding the fountain is a late 19th century milestone giving the distances to Stockport and Manchester. In the village centre there are also two buildings from the mid 19th century, No.5 Market Street, which dates from 1824 and across the road No.6, which dates from 1842. ocal Places of Interest Further along, towards Newtown, is the Dandy Cock which is one of several public houses that existed in the 19th century. Originally its main entrance faced Hollinwood Road, but the building was turned around when the present main road was constructed in the early part of the 19th century. In Higher Disley, Disley Hall, on Corks Lane, is believed to be on the site of the original settlement in the area. The building itself has been altered with the passage of time, but it still retains a sturdiness that is characteristic of many such former farming buildings. Another reminder of the agricultural origins of the village can be seen at Stanley Hall Farm Barn on the golf course. The barn is probably late medieval and still retains its cruck framed construction. The Bowstones are two upright stones on the highest part of the moorland above Lyme Park. The origin of these two stones is unknown but it has been suggested that they might have had some religious significance. In Lyme Hall itself, there are two Anglo-Saxon Crosses which were found near the parish church. In the churchyard there is a stone block in which there are two holes which is believed to be the base of the crosses. 23
