Wilmslow has played host to wartime codebreaker Alan Turing, children's broadcaster Romany and several worldfamous footballers. Its ancient landscape witnessed the ritual sacrifice of Lindow Man. Its modern townscape is studded with luxury cars. Spies have trained to infiltrate enemy lines, and millworkers have toiled to produce silk and cotton. Ramshackle dwellings have given way to upmarket offices, and poverty and affluence have walked hand-in-hand. Nestling on the Cheshire plain between the Rivers Bollin and Dean, Wilmslow is a town where people treasure their green spaces, take pride in their heritage, and converge as a community in times of joy and remembrance. Founded on a fusion of agriculture, industry and commerce, the juxtaposition of old and new speaks of a resilient people with the skills and vision to transform, adapt, survive and prosper.
