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.
Looking for something still on the old site? Please use this link.
Marple residents and heritage enthusiasts are being offered the chance to save an historically important canal side building and convert it to a community and heritage attraction. The building has been at risk of conversion to residential, but a new plan would renovate The Wharf to be a Community Café and Heritage Centre, with a much-needed health and well-being facility too.
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.
