This is the community web site for Marple in Stockport. It was started in 1998 to provide useful information for local people and potential visitors and to contribute to the fantastic community spirit that abounds in this small canal town on the edge of the peaks. It continues to do this with regular updates and lots of interaction with the local community.

Stockport Hydro Ltd is delighted to announce that £5,832, raised through the sale of renewable energy and donations by members, has been donated to 16 diverse environmental and educational projects locally.
The Wharf Marple CIC is very pleased to announce that we are now in a position to go ahead and buy the Warehouse building from CRT.
It is thanks to you, our Investors who have pledged to buy a stake in, what is quite possibly, Marple’s most important and exciting community project, that we have reached this first important milestone.
If you represent a local non-profit making organisation that you feel should be featured in the Community Group Pages, if you'd like a banner to promote your local business, or if you have any ideas about how the site can be improved, please get in touch using the contacts page.
Independent contributions and articles on local history, attractions or other matters of interest to the local community are particularly welcome.
If you enjoy what's here please register on the Marple Community Forum and Notice Board and join in the discussions.
