History of Stockport

History of Stockport

The name of the borough was derived from two saxon words: STOC – a stockaded place or castle, and PORT – a wood. Literally, a castle in a wood. There is sufficient evidence that a stronghold existed in the vicinity in ancient British times as well as early Roman times. ... One of those feudal barons was the Baron of Stockport


In the 16th Century , Stockport had originaly been a small town located on the south bank of the Mersey , known for the cultivation of hemp and manufacture of rope! Then later on in the 18th century it had one of the first merchandised silk factories in the British Isles.

More History...


Originally as stated Stockport began as a small village but however if you date back to even earlier in the 13th century Stockport grew into a town. In 1260 the people of Stockport were given a charter, which gave them certain rights including the right to hold weekly markets and annual fairs. 

In Medieval Stockport weaving cloth was an important industry although there were also the same craftsmen found in any town such as blacksmiths, carpenters, coopers and tailors.

What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Stockport

Yes I have been watching Stockport develop over the past few years and really is one borough oozing with potential. Did you know that in Stockport , the famous ' The Plaza' dates back to 1932 , and actually is recognised globally as being the last building of this nature which is still in the same format as it was all those years ago!

What is Stockport famous for ?

One of the many things that this area is known for is that Stockport was famous for hat production. In Stockport well over 6 million hates were exported all around the world, meaning that there was a little bit of Stockport in so many cities and countries

Additionally Stockport is not just home to quite a few famous landmarks but even Strawberry Studios had  operated in Stockport from 1968 to 1993 and while it was owned and used by 10cc, a range of massive artists recorded at the studio. Joy Division and The Stone Roses are not just two of the best Manchester and UK acts of all time, they both recorded in Manchester. Paul McCartney has also recorded tracks in the studio.
