About 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.
