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.

As many people will know, the Marple Website was the driving force behind the restoration of the Iron Bridge in Brabyns Park. This lengthy project began in 2001 and restoration was completed in 2008. The web site is working with Friends of Brabyns Park and the Council to secure the future of the Bronze Plaque installed in 2009 and is pleased to report that funding for Stage One of the project was achieved in June 2020.
The June draw of the Friends of Marple Memorial Park 50-50 Club has been made and the lucky winners announced.
To date £1,824 has been awarded in prizes and a similar amount allocated to Park Funds, so this is a great way to support the volunteers who look after our wonderful park.
There is still time to subscribe before the next draw deadline of 31 July, so please read more about how you can support the Friends of the Park and be in with a chance to win a cash prize each month too!
The Marple Website would like to share this great opportunity for funding with groups in the Marple, Marple Bridge, Mellor, Compstall, Strines, Hawk Green and High Lane areas.
