Moving to Marple
« Reply #15 on: July 06, 2004, 11:29:46 AM »
I used to live in Marple and went to Peacefield and then to Marple Hall. I now live in Dukinfield, But i would move back to Marple given half the chance and if i win the lottery to afford the houses. My family all live in Marple and the so called areas being Offerton, Romiley so I travel to Marple every week to see all the family.

I also find that if you are ok to the so called "scallys" you will find that they are ok. If you stay away from the so called trouble areas then you will not be involved with goings on that go on in that area.

I also agree that the shops in Marple are cheerfull and helpfull to members of the public.

Now I'm quite worried!!  We like a house on Woodville Drive but with all the talk about Beirut Corner and living near pubs I'm reluctant to make a move.  The house is great and backs on to Middlewood way - would those of you who really know Woodville Drive and Cross Lane go for it or what!?!?!?

My family and I have lived on Woodville Drive for the last 15 years or so and I can recommend it without hesitation. The section backing onto the Middlewood Way is probably even quieter that the part we are on, which is the corner of Brydges Road, and it's a good way from the real trouble spots of Marple.

Nearer the Otters can be a little noisy at times but I'm not aware of any real trouble. Probably the worse thing you'll experience is the bad language from the players on the Rugby pitch on the other side of the Middlewood Way on a Saturday afternoon.

If you're reasonably close try visiting at different times of the day and night - that should convince you that you've nothing to be concerned about.

thanks Mark!  that's really helped My gut feeling was that Marple seems a very nice place to live and we love the house and the idea of backing onto Middlewood Way and being so secluded.  It's funny how it can just take one comment to really make you think twice and not knowing the area at all it's a big gamble to just up sticks and move.  I have drove around there quite a few times now and it always seems very quiet (maybe too quiet for my teenage daughter!!!'<img'> but hey! you can't have it all ways can you?!?!?

My house backs onto the middlewood way on Woodville drive, it is a really nice road to live on. The people are nice who live on here, I know several people who live on Larch close, which backs onto the otters pub car park, they have never had a problem with noise coming from the pub. There a 2 houses for sale on the stretch that i live on , I am surprised they have not been sold sooner, Yes you do get noise from the rugby pitch, but it isnt all day, everyday, sometimes you do get swearing, but it seems to better now as quite a few of the neighbours went over and had  a word with the ref! Woodville drive is a great road to live on, especially where we are, we are not over looked at the back, the only traffic at the back of us is dog walkers, bikes, and horses!!!

Rugby players will be rugby players, i dont think a little word with the ref would stop those odd swear words!
