About the location
MELLOR, GREATER MANCHESTER
Stockport 8.6 miles; Manchester 13.9 miles; Macclesfield 14.4 miles
Mellor is nestled between Marple Bridge and New Mills on the fringes of the Peak District, near the county boundary with Derbyshire. A few small businesses work out of the old mills that scatter the countryside, a few farms have free-range chickens, and livestock grazing in the fields, and horse riding is a popular pursuit in the area, benefitting many ancient bridleways. The small town of Marple lies across the River Goyt, notable for its series of 16 canal locks, known as Marple Lock Flight. There are two railway stations, on the Hope Valley Line, linking to Manchester Piccadilly, ideal for shopping trips and exploring everything the city of Manchester has to offer. Interestingly, the Agatha Christie character, Miss Marple, was named after the station, at which the author was once delayed. Also close by is Marple Bridge, boasting many eateries and coffee shops. The Roman Lakes in the village are popular with anglers, walkers, cyclists and horse-riders. A walk to Disley will bring you to the National Trust property, Lyme Park, with formal gardens and deer park. Buxton is 15 miles away and is well worth a visit for gardens, independent shops and family-friendly attractions. Within driving distance are Chatsworth House, Holmfirth, Castleton, the Goyt Valley and the Blue John Mines, for further days out exploring an interesting region. A delightful location to base a well-earned holiday!
