Great Portwood Street.
Founded in 1844 as the district church for part of Brinnington (previously served by Stockport: St. Mary the Virgin). The boundaries of "The District of Portwood" were described in the London Gazette on 3 June 1844:
"All that part of the township of Brinnington, in the parish of Stockport, in the said county and diocese of Chester, lying within the borough of Stockport, and bounded on the north-east by the remaining portion of the said township of Brinnington, on the south, south-east, and south-west, by the river Mersey, and on the west and northwest, by the township of Heaton Norris, in the parish of Manchester, and in the said county of Lancaster.
The district was affected by the following boundary changes:
On 23 June 1971 the district was united with that of Portwood: St. Paul to form the combined district of "Brinnington with Portwood". St. Paul's church was closed and demolished shortly afterwards.
