Stockport was a very industrial city in the 18th and 19th centuries, and the Viaduct which dominates the landscape on the western side of the town, was built in 1840 to carry rail traffic from London and Birmingham onward past it towards Manchester.
The town is first mentioned in 1170 as ‘Stokeport’ meaning a settlement with a port (in old English). There was a castle built in 1173 in the Motte and Bailey style of the Normans, but it was in ruins by 1535, and the remains were demolished in 1775.
There is no mention of it in the Domesday Book of 1068. Stockport was always quite a small town/hamlet up until the Industrial Revolution. However there has always been human settlements in the area, witnessed by the stone tools and weapons found from ancient man.
Unlike many areas of Britain, Stockport had little Roman habitation. The Romans did have a road passing by the town, but no major settlement in the area as it was not a strategic site.
