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 began working with Friends of Brabyns Park and the Council in September 2018 to secure the future of the Bronze Plaque installed in 2009 and is pleased to report that the project is now fully complete.
Marple Poppy Appeal team are hoping this year’s Poppy Appeal will be back to some form of normality, especially as this year is the 100th anniversary of the Poppy Appeal and to commemorate this milestone they are launching the appeal with a special Ride of Remembrance involving 100 motorbikes riding through the town.
