Stockport was a county borough in Cheshire, just to the southeast of Manchester. In 1974, it merged with adjoining areas (all of which had been in Cheshire) to form the Metropolitan Borough of Stockport within new Metropolitan County of Greater Manchester. Stockport became a unitary authority in 1986 when Greater Manchester lost its administrative status, becoming purely a ceremonial county.
Stockport Jewish Community
A Jewish community developed in Stockport in the early years of the twentieth century. However, numbers began to dwindle in the 1960s and the synagogue closed in the 1970s, Jews having migrated to other neighbourhoods in the Greater Manchester area.
