History

The name Timperley can be traced back in one spelling or another as far back as 1070. The spelling has changed a number of times from Timperleie through Tympurlegh and other variations to the name we know it as today. The name means a stone outcrop in a woodland clearing. Timperley is sited on on a solid sandstone and  years ago contained large stone quarries, all now disused. Large blocks of sandstone were known as "tymps" and there is still evidence of these stones today where they exist as  gate posts and garden walls. Just take a good look at the perimeter walls around Moss Park Gardens. READ MORE HERE
