About the Area
Our organisation is in an ideal location for individuals and families looking to relocate to a vibrant area. Stockport is an historic town positioned perfectly between the cosmopolitan city of Manchester and the beautiful countryside of the Derbyshire Peaks and the Cheshire Plains. There is something for everyone here.
The area boasts excellent schools, shopping facilities, a diverse and interesting range of visitor attractions, stunning countryside and a number of thriving local centres. The town has excellent motorway, major rail links (including a regular service which is less than 2 hours to London) and is a short drive from Manchester International Airport.
Stockport 's hinterland covers the much sought-after suburbs of Wilmslow, Didsbury, Macclesfield and Bramhall. Closer to the town centre are the areas of Heaton Norris, Heaton Chapel and Heaton Moor – all within a couple of miles of Stockport with a good mix of apartments, traditional and family housing - and all conveniently located along the main route linking Stockport to Manchester.
As one of the fastest growing towns in the North West, Stockport is also one of the greenest with 45 per cent of the region classified as greenbelt and home to 30 parks, over a million trees and the gateway to the Peak District National Park. Three rivers wind through the area, linked by walking and cycling trails to urban and countryside parks.
Stockport’s attractions include Bramall Hall, Lyme Park, Styal Country Park, Vernon Park, Hat Works Museum of Hatting, Stockport Museum, Air Raid Shelter and the 14th Century Chadkirk Chapel and Country estate.
