Macclesfield History Group

Macclesfield History Group encourages an appreciation of the local area’s history. It develops research, writing and history-related skills, and catalogues and maintains a collection of historical information to share with the local community and generally via the Internet.

The history of the town dates back to 1840.


Betty White, with her friends, has collected historical information about Macclesfield for sixty years. In addition to being closely involved with the publishing of two Macclesfield books, with others, she has researched and presented historical articles for many of the 900+ issues of the Macclesfield Newsletter.

We hope to make these, and much of the rest of the collection, available to those interested in the town and region's history.
