About your visit to the Orthotics Clinic

The Orthotics Clinic is located within Davenport House Clinic in Stalybridge, Tameside. Our podiatry clinic is one of a few in Manchester to have received the prestigious accreditation from the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists.

Our treatment rooms can only be described as stunning. Many of the original features of the house, built in 1858 for the surgeon Thomas Brierley, can still be seen. Each of our treatment rooms are spacious and airy and contain the highest standard of equipment. Our Podiatry treatment rooms are fitted with Pressure Plates and Treadmills to carry out Gait Analysis which is the assessment of the way we walk or run to highlight biomechanical abnormalities.

All of our staff are fully aware that our clinic is about you. We are a family run business and our aim is for you to feel comfortable at all times and be delighted with the treatment you receive.

Our services will always be tailored to meet your needs, and we will always try to see you at a time that suits you. Stalybridge is in the heart of Tameside, and is easily accessible from within the Manchester Area.

The History of Davenport House Clinic

Davenport House was built in 1858 and we are celebrating its 150th anniversary this year. The house stands proud at the top of Cheetham Hill Road with beautiful views to the hills and towards Stalybridge Industry. Davenport House's gardens would originally have extended to Buckley Street, but over the years land was sold off to members of the family, and the original stables demolished. The stableman's window, although now bricked up, can still be seen under the house.

Davenport House was historically used as a doctor's surgery and the side door alongside the car park would have been where patients would have entered. In the cellar, below the house, the original stone table where the doctor would have held post mortems can still be seen.

It is often suggested that the slab is so large that the house must have been built around the table.
