is a large town in Greater Manchester, England, 7 miles (11 km) south-east of Manchester city centre, where the River Goyt and Tame merge to create the River Mersey.The town is the largest settlement in the metropolitan borough of the same name.The area south of the Mersey was part of the Hamestan hundred.Cheadle, Bramhall, Bredbury, and Romiley are mentioned, but these all lay just outside the town limits.

Early Bronze Age (2000–1200 BC) remains include stone hammers, flint knives, palstaves (bronze axe heads), and funerary urns; all finds were chance discoveries, not the results of systematic searches of a known site.

Dent gives the size of the castle as about 31 by 60 m (102 by 197 ft), and suggests it was similar in pattern to those at Pontefract and Launceston.

The castle was probably ruinous by the middle of the 16th century, and in 1642 it was agreed to demolish it.

Historically, most of the town was in Cheshire, but the area to the north of the Mersey was in Lancashire.

Stockport in the 16th century was a small town entirely on the south bank of the Mersey, and known for the cultivation of hemp and manufacture of rope.
