Cheadle is a suburban village situated in the Metropolitan Borough of Stockport, Greater Manchester, England.
Cheadle was historically situated in Cheshire and it borders Cheadle Hulme, Gatley, Heald Green and Cheadle Heath in Stockport, and East Didsbury in Manchester. Since prehistoric times, there has been a human occupation in the area that is today known as Cheadle with the earliest evidence of civilisation in the village being that of burial mounds which date back from the iron age, allegedly belonging to the Celts who occupied Britain. Later, the village was occupied by Brigantes and even the Romans. The village's Church, St Mary's Church situated on High Street was built during the reign of the infamous Henry VIII and is still standing as a Church today. Today, the village has many restaurants such as The Tiffin Room, Rio Brazil and Pizza Express and bars such as The Red Lion and The George and Dragon. In 2011, the village had a population of 14,698.
Cheadle is accessed by junctions 2 and 3 of the M60 Manchester orbital motorway.
