The 33-year-old played for The Shakers reserves on Wednesday and manager Andy Preece is delighted to bring in some much-needed experienced to his Gigg Lane squad.
Preece told the Bury official website: "We now have a good balanced squad and if needed, we can change the entire eleven players on the pitch.
"We have competition in every department and this will give us even more competition to get into the side.
"I am delighted that Colin has joined us."
The former Chester City trainee has had spells at Norwich City and Scottish Premier League side Aberdeen before moving to County for £200,000 in July 1997.
However with Stockport's relegation to Division Two last term, boss Carlton Palmer decided to release his former captain at the end of the season and Woodthorpe will look to continue his career in Division Three with The Shakers.
