Welcome to the Marple Website

Welcome to the Marple Website

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 is now in its 3rd Generation and continues to do this with regular updates and lots of interaction with the local community.

Green light for flagship new Marple community hub as council secures £20 million funding

Funding for a new community hub with a pool, library, gym, community space and play park has been approved for Marple. We're told artistic impressions are not accurate and consultation with main interest groups including Friends of the Park will start soon.

Marple Community Hub is coming!

Independent contributions and articles on local history, attractions or other matters of interest to the local community are particularly welcome.
