Trains to Macclesfield

Macclesfield in Cheshire made its name in the 19th century as the centre of Britain's silk industry. At its height, there were 71 silk mills operating in the town, and there is still a working mill museum, where visitors can see demonstrations. Just a few miles to the east of the town is the Peak District - the UK's first designated National Park and one of the most visited. A 20-minute drive in the other direction brings you to Alderley Edge, famous for its many Merlin myths and stunning views from the natural rocky outcrop. The current modernist Macclesfield station dates back to the 1960's upgrading of the West Coast Main Line, although previous stations served the town from 1849. Regular services run between Macclesfield and Manchester Piccadilly with an average journey time of about 25 minutes. It's about 1 hour 30 to London Euston and just over an hour to Birmingham New Street.
