About Macclesfield

Macclesfield is a market town in East Cheshire. The population of the Macclesfield based on the 2011 census was 51,739. Like many other areas in Cheshire, is considered to be a relatively affluent town.

The Earls of Chester established the Forest of Macclesfield which was much larger than its present-day namesake. It was used for hunting deer and pasturing sheep and cattle. By the end of the 13th century, large areas of the forest had been ploughed because of the pressure of population growth.

Macclesfield was once the world's biggest producer of finished silk. There were 71 silk mills operating in 1832. Paradise Mill is a working mill museum which demonstrates the art of silk throwing and Jacquard weaving to the public.
