Welcome to Macclesfield, a semi-rural affluent town situated in the east of Cheshire.

Rooftops Macclesfield is a busy and bustling office covering the whole of the immediate Macclesfield area, as well as Bollington, Tytherington, Gawsworth, Sutton and Langley.

The town is most famous for its once thriving silk industry commemorated in the local Silk Museum.  Although “Silk Town” seems to the the preferred nickname these days, Macclesfield is also known as “Treacletown", referring to the centuries old accident when a horse drawn wagon overturned, spilling its cargo of Treacle onto the cobbles - in fact there is a market named after this event taking place on the last Sunday of every month featuring Arts, Antiques, Crafts, Food and Drink -

To the west of the town lies the Cheshire Plains and to the east lies the hills of the Peak District ideally suited for walkers and ramblers and those of you who love the great outdoors.  There are numerous National Trust sites in the area with beautiful historic buildings and gardens.

Never short of interests Macclesfield has a whole range of Bars, Restaurants and shops for the “shopaholics” with a discerning palate and for the more “athletic types” there is a Leisure Centre and Golf Courses, the Town also has its own Football Club - Macclesfield Town.

The town is served by four state high schools - the Macclesfield Academy, the Falibroome Academy, Tytherington High School and All Hallows Catholic College and two independent schools - The Kings School and Beech Hall.

Macclesfield also has great commuter links with a Bus Station and Railway Station situated right in the heart of the town centre with links to Manchester (taking as little as 27 minutes on some services) and London (taking just 1 hour, 46 minutes on the direct service) as well as other destinations.
