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.

St George's Vicarage - saved?
The following message is from John Fidler, organiser of the petition reported below:
As of 17:15 on, Monday 30th January 2017, the online and hard copy petition signatures to save St. George's Vicarage, Stockport totalled 502 - a fewmore than when we submitted the petition to Stockport Council earlier that afternoon.
We just received good news that the architect-developers, Purcell, and their client, the Chester Diocesan Board of Education, have withdrawn their demolition application today (as our petition suggested) before Stockport Council could determine the case.
Objections to demolition had been received from Historic England, the Victorian Society and the Ancient Monuments Society, besides, in this petition:275 concerned Stockport citizens (55% of all petitioners) of whom well over half live near to or regularly pass by the Vicarage site;
47 neighbouring Mancunians;The Stockport Heritage and Building Preservation Trusts have asked Stockport Council to intervene now and call a meeting with the architect-developers and the Diocese to discuss appropriate and sufficient enabling development to repair and restore the Vicarage. Or suffer the service of a Repairs Notice to stem the awful longstanding neglect of the listed building.
