Hazel Grove is a suburb of Stockport within the Greater Manchester area. Conveniently situated just a couple of miles from the town centre, Hazel Grove is well-served by strong road links to the north and south of the country, as well as to the Peak District National Park and open countryside of the Cheshire Plain.
Hazel Grove’s early history suggests it was comprised of three separate townships, one of which is mentioned in the Doomsday Survey. These days, Hazel Grove, as it was renamed, has become a popular place to shop. The area offers an array of independent and high street retailers, interspersed with delicatessens, specialist food shops and a thriving cafe culture.
A short journey to Stockport town centre offers the contrasting attractions of big name brands and the traditional Victorian covered market. More than 200 stalls sell speciality foodstuffs and anything from crockery to curtains. Steeped in heritage, the cobbled streets of Stockport contrast with the open spaces of nearby country parks and the Cheshire Plain.
Enjoy a heritage trail alongside the picturesque Peak Forest Canal or for more leisurely entertainment, head to the Stockport Plaza and soak up the sumptuous period setting.
