Stockport is situated 7 miles from Manchester city centre and while frequent trains can take you into the city in 10 minutes, Stockport has a lot to offer in its own right. Underbank Hall and Stockport Town Hall provide Stockport with its most notable architecture and Vernon Park, which opened in 1884, is an enjoyable place to walk a relax. Strawberry Studios, which operated from 1968 to 1993, is a place of particular historical and musical interest. Part owned – and often used by 10cc – this studio has had famous artists including Joy Division the Stone Roses and Paul McCartney record there. Stockport also has 3 athletics clubs, a twelfth century church and a grade II listed cinema, The Plaza, which is the last venue of its kind. Stockport has clearly got lots to offer and therefore it is unsurprising that reallymoving.com and our expert conveyancing solicitors have helped over 1300 people relocate to Stockport in the last year alone.
Stockport was an industrial town in the 19th century, specialising predominantly in cotton manufacture. The town was also the centre of the hatting trade which, at its peak, exported 6 million hats a year. In more recent times, old industrial buildings have been converted into homes and this is one reason reallymoving.com strongly recommends the services of our professional conveyancing solicitors as they will conduct the necessary environmental searches to determine if your prospective property has suffered any damages during previous industrial use.
Our conveyancers are here to make the legal side of your move as straightforward as it can be so you can begin enjoying your new home in Stockport as soon as possible.
