Town Centre

Located in the English county of Cheshire, Macclesfield is struggling to reinvent itself after being an industrial powerhouse in the 19th and 20th centuries. The town centre is located on the top of a hill with wonderful views of the Cheshire countryside.

The centre of the city is “Treacle Market” (Mill Street), just up the hill from the train station. This cobble square has the wonderful St Michael & All Angels Church to the east with coffee shops, restaurants and bakeries nearby.

St Michael & All Angels Church

Though the town centre has a number of typical high street shops and is a bit concrete-y the cobble, winding streets, small alleys and hilly aspect give it a bit of a comfortable charm with absolutely no pretentions.


Macclesfield is a short train ride from Manchester with the central train station NRLOGO Macclesfield. Mill street is generally closed to traffic but you can park nearby in various car parks with the most central being the multi-story at The Grosvenor Shopping Centre (adjacent to Treacle Market) called “Churchill Way”.
