Marple Bridge Town Street shops
Click to view larger image

Post office and shops along Town Street Marple Bridge (Cheshire/Stockport MBC). This is a conservation area, with traditional style houses built in local stone. Old style lanterns have been added to the streetscape. Modern elements include parking bays inset into the pavement.

Off the picture to the right is the river Goyt, which divides Marple Bridge from Marple. This is also an ancient boundary, from whence the name Marple is derived. Maere is boundary - as used in the name Mersey - and pool, referring to the river at this point. Bridge refers to the actual bridge across the river Goyt, vitally important in past times and is still significant today.
