Macclesfield Community History


Many history websites concentrate on the materials collected and provide little in the way of personal recollections and histories. Though our primary aim must be to carefully record and categorise our photographic and other physical resources for historians who follow us, we would like to do both. To do otherwise may lead to a less vital website.
