Cheadle is believed to date back approximately 1,500 to 2,000 years and appears in the Domesday Book under the name "Cedde" ( Clearing in a wood ).

St. Mary's Church on the Cheadle High Street was originally built in the 1200s but was then rebuilt in 1523 under Henry VIII (completed 1550).

Cheadle grew rapidly during the Industrial Revolution when it was used as a stopping point for travellers and merchants on their way to Central Manchester.

Cheadle has and always will thrive primarily due to its location at the tip of South Manchester and gateway to Cheshire.

Modern Cheadle benefits from excellent commuter links, with easy access to both the M60 Manchester Orbital Motorway and M56 motorway.  Cheadle is  11 km (7 miles) from Manchester City Centre.  Cheadle is also close to Manchester Airport and Stockport mainline railway station with fast trains to London.
