Little Happy Hounds dog walking and cat visits we cover Mellor

Mellor is a village within the Metropolitan Borough of Stockport, in Greater Manchester, England. Mellor, situated between Marple BridgeMoorend and New Mills, runs along a tributary of the River Goyt. It extends from the start of the old turnpike road at the boundary of Marple Bridge to the current county boundary withDerbyshire.[1] Mellor no longer has any shops, so people now shop in Marple Bridge, Marple or further afield. It has a church, primary school, golf course, sports club and a riding school. There are three pubs in the village, The Royal Oak,[2] The Devonshire Arms,[3] and The Oddfellows Arms.[4] There is also a fourth pub, the Hare and Hounds[5] in the hamlet of Mill Brow, which was formerly part of the civil parish of Mellor. An independent census from 1891 lists several of these pubs and a complex of shops and industries which no longer exist.[6]

As with virtually all towns and villages in Britain, there is a World War I memorial, situated in a small park at the very heart of the modern village. Farmland takes the bulk of the remaining space, although with the decline in the farming economy in recent years, much of it is now given over to non-agricultural uses: horses, golf, and a scout camp. A number of farm buildings and Mellor Hall date back to the late 17th century, and were built on ruins of earlier buildings, illustrating the long-standing importance of agriculture to Mellor. The village was a civil parish in the county of Derbyshire until 1936, when it was transferred to Marple Urban District in Cheshire; in 1974 it became part of Greater Manchester.
