Macclesfield Forest

Macclesfield is not strictly in the Peak District and lies just below on the western edges of the moorland which rises up beyond the infamous ‘cat and fiddle’ road, labelled the most dangerous road in Britain. Away from the town Macclesfield is surrounded by some impressive countryside. So whether you take a 20 min train journey from Manchester or drive the short distance from the Peak District, there is much to discover in and around the historic town Macclesfield
