The Ladybrook Valley begins in the English Peak District and runs through Stockport. In its 15 km course the brook falls 275 m. At various points it is called Bollinhurst Brook, Norbury Brook, the River Ladybrook and the Mickerbrook.

The valley has some notable features along its course including Bramall Park and the seven arches railway viaduct in Cheadle Hulme. South of Hazel Grove it is used to delineate the boundary between Greater Manchester and Cheshire. The Lady Brook is a tributary of the River Mersey, the confluence is beneath the weir at Cheadle.
