Cheadle Moseley was a township in the ancient parish of Cheadle, now in Greater Manchester, England. It lay in the historic county of Cheshire.

Geography[edit]

Cheadle Moseley covered the rural area that includes parts modern-day Cheadle and Cheadle Hulme.[1]

It was bordered to the west by Stockport Etchells and part of Cheadle Bulkeley, to the north by Heaton Norris, to the east by another part of Cheadle Bulkeley and Bramhall and to the south by Handford.

History[edit]

Cheadle Moseley existed as a township from the Middle Ages until 1894, when it was merged with the townships of Cheadle Bulkeley and Stockport Etchells to form the Cheadle and Gatley Urban District, finally becoming part of the Metropolitan Borough of Stockport in 1974.[2]
