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.

The 2019 Marple Food and Drink Festival will have a wide variety of stalls and plenty to keep the whole family entertained.
This year stallholders are showcasing even more delicious artisan products made in Marple and the local area, so it's a day out not to be missed.
The event gets under way at 10am on Saturday September 21 and will continue until about 4pm.
Following discussions on the Marple Community Hub Facebook page in September 2019, the Marple Website teamed up with Friends of Marple Memorial Park to create the first Marple "Happy to Chat Bench" on Derby Way. This bench, refurbished by Friends of the Park, has been chosen as the first location in Marple because the idea is supported by Wayne Eric Wood, owner of Mr. Chips on Derby Way, and he has said he'll be happy to chat to anyone who sits there and would like to talk.
