About Gamesley

Gamesley is a village on the outskirts of Glossop, just off the Glossop to Marple road (A626).

Although parts of Gamesley have existed for many hundreds of years, particularly the remains of the Roman Fort of Melandra. The bulk of the Gamesley estate has only been here since the 1960’s, when Manchester City Council, built the Gamesley estate. The Gamesley estate is one of the Manchester overspill estates built as part of the work to clear poor housing in Manchester.
