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.

There is still time to subscribe before the next draw deadline of 31 August, so please read more about how you can support the Friends of the Park and be in with a chance to win a cash prize each month too!
