MARPLE AND MARPLE BRIDGE
Where town meets country
Lauren Allen

Made with love should be the trademark for lovely Marple and Marple Bridge, which are perfectly positioned for life in the slow lane. The small town and village are sought after by those who want to live at their own pace, with the pleasure of being close enough to Manchester to dabble in the city for work or play. The area is cool, calm, and collected, with a fabulous range of bars, pubs, cafés, and restaurants catering to all tastes and fancies. And the small but well-packed high street is just the place for a weekend mooch.

Visitors are charmed by the scenic bridge over the River Goyt, and in the summertime the place is brimming with glorious hanging baskets and becomes a place to laze away the days. If you pick the right spot along the river, you’ll see the resident heron and his kingfisher mates, while the Roman Lakes welcome people who fancy a touch of walking, cycling, fishing, or canoeing. Picnicking is a hit, too.

Locals praise their hometown for the three Cs – community, character, and conservation. So what are you waiting for?
