Mere is a civil parish and linear village along the A556 road in the unitary authority of Cheshire East and the ceremonial county of Cheshire, England, about 7 km (4.3 mi) south-west of Altrincham. Bucklow Hill is at its northeast end, and the Mere crossroads is at the southwest end.

A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Mere from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:

"MERE, a township, with a village, in Rostherne parish, Cheshire; 2½ miles NW of Knutsford. Acres: 2,438. Real property: £4,984. Population: 556. Houses: 112. The manor, with Mere New Hall, belongs to T. J. L Brooke, Esq. The Hall is a fine edifice, in the Tudor style; and stands amid richly ornate grounds. A lake of about 50 acres is in front of the mansion, and gave origin to the name Mere. A chapel of ease is at Hoo-Green."
