Walklate Foundation

In 1693 The Walklate Trust was established to endow a school for Mellor. When the new school was built in the 1880s the trust started to make grants to scholars from Mellor to attend Public Elementary school. From 1955 onwards it has made grants to young people moving to higher education.

The Trustees have decided that they would like the Foundation to return to its original purpose and support Mellor School with development projects, while still retaining the option of supporting individuals.
