District Centre


cropped-map.jpg

Marple District Centre was changed radically in the 1970s when Market Street was paved over and Hibbert Lane was extended between Church Lane and Stockport Road. The majority of the images in this album were taken by Marple UDC during these changes and the location of each shot was marked on a large plan of the area, which is also included in the album.

Market Street


picture12.jpg

Market Street is now the thriving centre of Marple shopping, recently regenerated with improvements to the paved area. Most of the pictures in this album show a very different Market Street, before pedestrianisation, but it's clear that it was at the heart of the community then too.
