Portwood is an area in Stockport, England, lying just outside the town centre, and based around Great Portwood Street. It is a mixed area, with the part closest to the town centre mainly given over to shops (e.g. the Peel Centre) and the further part residential. The Rivers Tame and Goyt and the M60 motorway run through the area.

The former Stockport Portwood railway station lies under the M60 motorway.[1]
