About Woodford

Woodford is a semi-rural, ribbon village in the Metropolitan Borough of Stockport in Greater Manchester, England. It lies just over 5 miles south of Stockport and a tad under 11 miles south east of Manchester on the A5102 road. Woodford is the most southerly point of the Greater Manchester region, close to the Peak District and South Pennines. Wilmslow is to the west, Poynton to the east and Bramhall to the north, Broadly speaking, Woodford consists of approximiately 550 residential properties (as of 2015), some retail outlets, a Church, a traditional pub, a golf course, a War Memorial Community Centre, working farms and open farmland. It also boasted (since 1924), until 2011 the famous Woodford Aerodrome. This will become a new residential development over a period of some ten years, work commenced here in 2015.

Historically part of Cheshire, throughout the Middle Ages Woodford was a hamlet in the parish of Prestbury. It was incorporated into the Urban District of Hazel Grove and Bramhall in 1939 and then into the Metropolitan Borough of Stockport in 1974.
