The local area
Home to a thriving community of independent shops, bars, cafés and restaurants, Macclesfield is a great example of how a town can modernise to embrace latest trends, while retaining its proud history. You can choose between all your favourite high street retail and dining options, and the historic cobbled side streets, where the quality and variety of the boutique shops and eateries has rightly drawn comparisons with Manchester’s Northern Quarter.
Some of the attractive features of living in Macclesfield are:
The range of schools available for families living in Macclesfield is one of the main reasons why it is becoming increasing popular. As well as two renowned independent schools, Beech Hill and The King’s School, there are also fourteen local primary and secondary state schools which were rated “Outstanding” in their most recent Ofsted inspection (including Fallibroome Academy and All Hallows secondary schools).
Transport links from Macclesfield also help to explain its popularity, especially for people looking for an alternative to living in Manchester city centre. For drivers, excellent links to the M6, M56 and M60 mean that travelling by road is quick and easy, while Macclesfield railway station allows you to reach Manchester city centre in just 25 minutes, and you can get to London in under two hours. If you need to travel further afield, Manchester Airport is 12 miles away.
Shopping and eating
Macclesfield has undergone an impressive transformation in recent years, with local people opening a huge range of boutique, independent retail and eating establishments to complement the usual high street favourites. The pedestrianised town centre is one of the best retail locations in Cheshire and is supplemented with a vibrant market culture, including the Treacle Market, which boasts over 150 stalls selling antiques, artisan crafts and fabulous food and drink. The Picturedrome, Macclesfield’s recently opened alternative to Altrincham Market, offers even more variety for lovers of delicious, independent food and drink, while the famous Castle Quarter provides a further alternative, with bakeries, bars, and award-wining restaurants. Lovers of real ale will also be spoilt for choice in one of the country’s most dynamic centres for independent brewers.
A centre for the arts
Live music is thriving in Macclesfield, with a number of fabulous local venues, including Mash Guru. Macclesfield is also home to the Barnaby Festival, which can be traced back to the 13th century, a joyous celebration of live music, art and theatre in the middle of summer, involving almost every café, bar and pub in the town. CineMacc, recently opened at the local heritage centre, means that Macclesfield film lovers now have access to their very own independent cinema.
For those who love the great outdoors, Macclesfield is on the doorstep of the Peak District, surrounded by famous beauty spots such as Tegg’s Nose, Shutlingsloe and Sutton and Bossley reservoirs. The Macclesfield Canal is popular for walkers and boaters, and Macclesfield Forest provides the opportunity to walk among the herd of red deer.
Cycling is hugely popular in the Macclesfield area, with quiet country roads and some challenging hills on which to test yourself, and golf enthusiasts can choose from five different quality courses in the area. The Macclesfield Harriers are one of the best running clubs in the country, making good use of the variety of local geography by organising regular road, trail and fell running.
