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 Marple and Romiley area has scooped 3 Awards at the 16th Cheshire Best Kept Stations Awards Evening held on Tuesday 5th February 2019. Marple won the Transport for Greater Manchester Award; Romiley the World War 1 Centenary Award and Rose Hill the Merseyrail In Bloom Award. The awards cover pre-1974 Cheshire boundaries which includes Stockport and the Wirral and in 2018 the lead sponsors of the Awards were Merseyrail. All three winners are Northern stations.
January has been a quieter month as we have all been recovering from the busy Christmas Collections and celebrating Christmas and New Year with our families and friends.
