Macclesfield is known as Treacletown, referring to the centuries old accident when a horse drawn wagon overturned, spilling its cargo of Treacle onto the cobbles. Nowadays there is a monthly Treacle Market in the Market Place, a chance to find gorgeous things on Macclesfield's streets once again. Just less sticky.
Abundant stalls selling high quality, locally made and reared food and drink: beers, cheeses, artisan breads, cakes, honey, pies and meat. Also vintage homewares, antiques, books and beautiful work from local artists and makers. if its the unusual or different you seek...
