Staircase House in Stockport in Stockport Market is a restored 15th century townhouse which contains a Jacobean cage-newel staircase, which is one of only three in the UK. Staircase House is a Grade II-listed building.
The staircase was installed by the Shallcross family who owned the Staircase House from 1605 to 1730.
Staircase House has been restored since the mid 1990's when it was targeted in arson attacks by local vandals.
Blackshaw's Café, which opened its doors in 1860, is now part of Staircase House, which also has a small souvenir shop.
