    Alderly Edge? I assume its not Cheadle, Bramhall or Maprle as they are all in Greater Manchester now Or maybe some where like Bowdon?
    Ah, Greater Manchester is a joke. You know you still want to be part of the red rose county really

    I'm from Northamptonshire, and its the south midlands. I'm in Staffordshire now and thats the north midlands - anything north of here is the north.

    Pig's map is a misrepresentation of the true boundaries, as I said earlier, its more to do with population than geography.

    That poll is a load of *******s! Since when has Durham been such a big county and the same for the rest? I mean you've missed one of the biggest and bestest counties on there!

    And Midlands isn't a county.

    Its just daft though, I live 5 minutes walk from the Merseyvalley which is borders Sale, Sale was in Cheshire but I don't say I live 5 minutes walk from Cheshire.

    The worst one is people who live in places like Reddish (not a particualy nice area) in Stockport always say they live in Cheshire, its a shanty town!

    To me places like Hale, Timperly, Cheadle, Bramahal are just posh parts of Greater Manchester, not Cheshire. You don't need to live in Cheshire to live in a posh area.

    No way! Lancashire is quite tiny! So why don't they have the biggest and most important counties on there?

    Lancashire is reasonably large for a county. Back in the day it was huge. It incorporated the majority of what is now Greater Manchester and parts of North and West Yorkshire.

    Like which ones? Rutland?

    This post is fantastic!! I never thought that my beloved stockport would ever be talked about so much...ever!!

    To put a conclusion on the arguement, officially Stockport is in Greater Manchester, but that makes everyone think that we are from Manchester, which is wrong. We are from Cheshire. Thats why at Stockport County we sing "We're the pride of Cheshire" and, when anyone sings to us "We're the sh*t of manchester", we sing:
    "We're not from,
    We're not from,
    We're not from Manchester,
    So this is our retort,
    Look it up,
    You thick b*stards,
    We are from STOCKPORT!"

    East Didsbury?

    I live quite near there, I'm a bit further west though, in between Didsbury, Fallowfiield, Withington, Stretford, Sale, Northenden, Whalley Range and Old Trafford, all them areas border Chorlton. (its a huge area)
