Marple village satisfies an ideal compromise between both urban and rural landscapes. It is conveniently located approximately 5 miles from Stockport Town Centre and boasts picturesque surroundings alongside the Peak Forest Canal and nearby Peak District National Park.

The village roots lie in mainly small agricultural and woollen manufacturing practices. However, the coming of Samuel Oldknow to Mellor in 1790 instigated a process of industrialisation that transformed the district. Oldknow established his Mill by the River Goyt, sank coal mines, built houses for his workers and made roads. He was also instrumental in the construction of the Peak Forest and Macclesfield Canals that converge at Marple centre.

Today, despite the ever-changing role of the centre it is Oldknow’s ingenuity and enduring architectural legacy that characterises the centre. The 1930’s saw the decline of the cotton industry but rail and the introduction of regular buses between Marple and Stockport centre initiated new growth and Marple became the much sought-after location it is today.
