Four Heatons

Looking from Heaton Moor, through Heaton Chapel to Reddish

Four Heatons is the name used to describe the four individual neighbourhoods of Heaton Chapel, Heaton Mersey, Heaton Moor and Heaton Norris.[1] Collectively, it forms a suburban area of Stockport which borders on to the city of Manchester, England.[1] It is a commuter zone, with greenbelt and a conservation area,[1] and is coterminous with the SK4 postcode district.[2]

The opening of railway stations, first at Heaton Norris in 1840 and then at Heaton Chapel & Heaton Moor in 1853 (renamed 'Heaton Chapel' in 1947[3]) resulted in the suburbanisation of the Four Heatons.

The four neighbourhoods each have their own individual high street and centre, but retain a common vibrant retailing theme, with bars, delis and independent music and cinema.[1]

In 2009, local businesses and traders formed a voluntary organisation in the area called the Four Heatons Traders Association.[2] This organisation is partly funded and supported by Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council, and has become a focal point for community regeneration projects.[2]
