About DavenportDavenport is a mostly-residential, tree-lined, suburb of Stockport, in Greater Manchester, England. Its focal point is its railway station, which is on the Manchester - Stockport - Buxton line, and it does have a range of facilities within a short distance which make it a particularly good place to live for anyone who does not wish to drive a car.
Minutes from the station there are some good quality shops, including convenience stores, a bank, a pharmacy, a baker, a butcher and a greengrocer as well as a post office/newsagent. Davenport is well-served by buses to Stockport town centre, and the trains will get you to Manchester Piccadilly station in 20 minutes.
The trains heading away from Stockport offer an instant transfer to the countryside, with pleasant walks along the Middlewood Way and Peak Forest Canal 15 minutes away and the Peak National Park within half an hour.
Stockport's main hospital, Stepping Hill, is a couple of kilometres away, and even the town's cemetery and crematorium are within walking distance. We have a 'green-flag' park, Cale Green Park, incorporating a kids' playground and with Cricket and Lacrosse clubs adjacent, and a good public house, the 'Jolly Sailor' about five minutes walk from the station. A Methodist church is nearby, and the large late-Victorian Anglican church, St George's, is a short walk towards Stockport.
