Welcome to the Wildboarclough and Macclesfield Forest parish website!

The parish is one of Cheshire's largest and most picturesque parishes and is based around the small rural hamlets of Wildboarclough and Macclesfield Forest.  Nestling in the hills on the western side of the Peak District visitors have the opportunity to explore a beautiful corner of Britain's oldest national park using an extensive network of paths and bridleways.  You will also be most welcome to visit the local hostelries and attractions. One of the main local events is the annual Rose Queen Fete and fell race which take place on Spring Bank Holiday Monday in the grounds of Crag Hall. 

On the first Sunday after 12 August the annual Rushbearing Service takes place at the Church of St Stephen Macclesfield Forest.  Please come and join us.
