About Congleton

Congleton is a parish in Cheshire East and lies just over 20 miles south of Manchester. It has a population of 25,750. South of this small town is a green expanse called Priestly Fields that forms a green corridor into the town centre.

History of Congleton

The first settlements in the Congleton area were Neolithic. Stone and Bronze Age artefacts have been found. Congleton was once thought to have been a Roman settlement, however became a market town after Vikings destroyed nearby Davenport.

In 1451, the River Dane flooded, destroying a number of buildings, the mill and the bridge. The river was diverted and the town could then be built on higher ground.

Interestingly, Congleton was the centre for bear-baiting and cock-fighting in the 1620's. In order to attract more spectators, it became legend that Congleton sold its bible to pay for a new bear.
