The Marple Website Community Directory
Welcome to The Marple Website Community Directory. A searchable on-line catalogue of local organisations, community groups and businesses in the District of Marple, Stockport, Greater Manchester or, as many locals still consider it to be, in the county of Cheshire!
If your community group or business is not in here, get in touch!
Please note the directory is being rebuild following upgrade
This section of The Marple Website is gradually being rebuilt following upgrade / migration of the site.
For the time being you can still find the full directory on the second generation Marple Website here.

These local businesses are valued sponsors of The Marple Website
Income from sponsors contributes to the running costs of the site and since 2010 surplus has been donated to local causes.
Find out how to become a Marple Website sponsor and read about the local causes supported by The Marple Website since 2006.
Community Group Pages
The Community Group Pages are special pages produced in support of local clubs, non-profit making organisations and charities who wish to be part of the Marple Website Community. Way back in 1998 this was originally aimed at organisations who didn't have the means to create their own web site. Times have changed greatly since then and even if your group does have its own web site, Facebook page, or uses another Social Media platform, you may still benefit greatly from becoming part of this community to raise your profile and help people find you. It should even improve your web site's rankings in the search engines.
Get in touch if you would like to feature your group's activities here.
This is a free service with no charges and is open to local clubs, non-profit making organisations and charities in Marple and District only.
Things to do and places to go in and around Marple
Marple has a variety of leisure facilities including parks, cinema, theatre and library. We did have a swimming pool and fitness centre too but that is currently closed. Attractions a little further away from the main centre include Chadkirk Chapel and Estate, Roman Lakes and The Garden House and the Dragon Miniature Railway.
Marple Community Toilet Scheme
Thanks to the kindness of our amazing local business owners, and the coordination skills of the Marple Vision Team, the "Marple Community Toilet Scheme" was launched in August 2023. The scheme means that the businesses listed here have given you permission to use their toilet facilities when they are open without the need to make a purchase.
