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.
The Marple Website and Marple Local History Society are delighted to have been able to help author Steve Cliffe by providing many of the wonderful images used in a new book about Marple Hall from the Virtual History Tour of Marple.
"The Tour" is a long-term collaboration between the web site and the society. It contains over 200 images relating to the hall and, at the time of writing, almost 14,000 local images in total that have been viewed nearly 4.5 million times.
The Marple Poppy Appeal has once again been a great success as we have raised over £18,000 to date (still counting) and we cannot thank the people of Marple and the surrounding areas enough for their continued support and generosity, especially in these somewhat difficult and uncertain times.
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.
