Life in Greater Manchester - Stockport

Stockport is one of the ten metropolitan boroughs within Greater Manchester. Alongside the town of Stockport itself, Romiley, Reddish, Gatley, Hazel Grove, Cheadle, Bramhall, Marple and Bredbury are all located within the borough.

Historically once part of Cheshire, Stockport became part of Greater Manchester in the 1970’s and is now a popular place to live and work. Manchester is well known for its links to its importance in the Industrial Revolution, the establishment of Canal and Dock networks and also the textile industry. Stockport itself became famous as the home of the hat industry within the 19th Century.

Architecturally Stockport is the location for over 350 Grade I and II listed buildings and offers some beautiful examples of medieval and Tudor Halls, most notably Bramall Hall and Peel Hall. The first of which was featured in the Domesday Book. In more recent history, the famous Stockport Air Raid Shelter was built in 1939 and provided shelter for almost 4,000 people in the area during the Second World War.

For those who enjoy the great outdoors, the borough of Stockport is home to 14 nature reserves and several nature and country parks. For families, there are many good schools in the area all achieving good results each year. For professionals, being only 7 miles outside of Manchester city centre, there are excellent transport links and close proximity to major road and motorway networks for those travelling outside of the city for work. For everyday life, Stockport has many great cafes, bars and restaurants and plenty of local shopping on offer in Merseyway Shopping Cente, the Peel Hall Centre and Stockport Market Place to name a few.

So if you are looking to move to the area, downsize or upscale within Stockport, our conveyancing solicitors in Stockport are on hand to help you.
