Macclesfield is located in the east of Cheshire, on the River Bollin, close to the county borders of Greater Manchester to the north, Derbyshire to the east and Staffordshire to the south. It is near the towns of Congleton to the south and Wilmslow to the north. To the west of the town lies the Cheshire Plain and to the east lie the hills of the Peak District. The name Macclesfield is believed to be derived from the Old English name, Maccel meaning open country.
Macclesfield is often nicknamed ‘Silk Town’ and was once the world’s biggest producer of finished silk with some 71 silk mills operating in 1832.
Macclesfield is the original home of Hovis bread makers, produced in Publicity Works Mill (commonly referred to as ‘the Hovis Mill’) on the canal close to Buxton Road. Hovis is said to derive from the Latin ‘homo-vitalis’ (strength for man) as a way of providing a cheap and nutritious food for poor mill workers and was a very dry and dense wholemeal loaf completely different from the modern version.
Between 1826 and 1831 the Macclesfield Canal was constructed, linking Macclesfield to Marple to the north and Kidsgrove to the south. Waters Green was once home to a nationally known horse market which features in the legend of the Wizard of Alderley Edge.
Today Macclesfield is the home to furniture store Arighi Bianchi, one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies AstraZeneca, and The King’s School, Macclesfield, which dates from the 16th century. Macclesfield is also home to significant digital business, particularly in the video game space.
Over recent years Macclesfield has been accused of lacking culture and this has prompted the resurrection of a century old tradition celebrating St Barnabas feast day each June. Macclesfield has had a ‘Barnaby Fair’ each year in June since the 13th century with parades, circuses, carnivals and mill shut-downs. Today the towns annual Barnaby Festival brings the town centre to life for two weeks with art, music, comedy, performance, and street entertainment.
