Magnus The Magpie


Introducing Magnus the Magpie. The official Magpie’s Nest Magpie.

Magnus has flown here and decided to make his home here in Stalybridge in February 2022. He has visited the town many times before, and has been a regular visitor to the shop since we opened in 2013. He loves all things shiny and decided that this would be the best shop for him to live in. When Magnus is not busy admiring all the beautiful gifts and shiny things in the gift shop, he can be found upstairs in the café taking in the view while working on his poetry. Magnus is a published poet, many will be familiar with his popular work ” One for Sorrow, Two for Joy” He lives off the royalties from his works, despite people often saying that Magpie’s take things from other birds, Magnus is self made and has his own creativity and vision. He is currently working on a rework of the popular title  “To Kill a Mocking Bird”  He does enjoy a good chatter, and when his mates visit they spend ages squawking especially in the morning over a coffee.
