Known for its excellent schools, easy accessibility to both Manchester and Sheffield, coupled with the stunning canal and countryside walks, Marple is a place that is loved by both young and old.
Marple is notable for its series of canal locks close to the village centre. The Peak Forest Canal boarders the village, running alongside Marple Memorial Park and Brabyns Park until it reaches the Marple Viaduct. The canal served as a vital link during the industrial revolution and today it provides an area of relaxation for walkers, anglers and boaters. The Roman Lakes leisure complex is popular with walkers, anglers, nature lovers and horse riders. It is located in the valley bottom close to Strines. In the area closest to the river there was a mill built by Samuel Oldknow; it is now ruined and overgrown. In 2011, volunteers uncovered the Wellington wheel pit, once the largest in the world, and entrance footings to the mill. They are currently seeking funds to continue the exploration, but for now the wheel pit can be veiwed.
