Adswood is a suburb of Stockport, Greater Manchester, England. The name is said to be derived from "Adders wood"; in the reign of King Charles, the area was royal hunting grounds with a large population of snakes. Adswood has its own coat of arms, a snake wrapped around a tree.
Council housing in Adswood began in the 1920s with the building of Culver Road at the back of the estate towards neighbouring Cale Green. The rest of the housing was built in the 1930s and 1940s. Before this, a farm stood on the land.
Adswood has a large tip.
