Stockport is situated seven miles southeast of Manchester City Centre and is one of the largest towns in the North West of England. In the 16th century, it was a small settlement producing rope and hemp products. By the 18th century, it was a thriving industrial town, the home of silk production in the UK. The industrial Stockport landscape has since been the subject of many iconic scenes by one of Manchester’s greatest known artists, L.S. Lowry. The city is now a hub of creativity and regeneration.
As Stockport has historically been such an important hub for industry in this country, it has excellent transport connections to the surrounding areas, in particular Manchester City Centre. Anybody who has visited the city will know of the towering brick arches that carry the railway lines over the town. The regular Manchester Piccadilly to London Euston railway service with the tilting trains stops off at Stockport, this means you can travel to Manchester in only 10 minutes on one of the best railways lines in the country. Perfect for commuters!
Compared to many of the areas close by in the South of Manchester, Stockport is very well priced. On average, a 2 bedroom house will cost around £132,059 and a 3 bedroom house will be £203,048. The average house price in Stockport has gone up by £10,960 in the last 12 months, according to Zoopla, which is an increase of 5.49% meaning that people are starting to realise that Stockport offers a great investment opportunity.
