Coach Tours - Macclesfield Minibus
Get ready for the day trip experience of a lifetime when you arrange Macclesfield Minibus hire to check out the nearby town of Congleton. Situated on the River Dane in the northwest of England, Congleton is a typical Cheshire town rich in history and heritage and within close proximity of beautiful countryside. An old story tells of how during the 17th century the town sold its church bible to buy a new bear in order to attract more visitors to its bear baiting contests. While the facts behind the story don't tally with the fiction, the town still retains the nickname ‘Beartown’ on account of the incident.
Congleton's Town Hall is one of the town's most historic constructions, built in a Victorian-Gothic style and dating back to the 1860s. Other historic buildings around Congleton tell tales of the town's once-booming textile industry, which is now almost entirely diminished. Mills in various states of repair can be found at various locations, some seemingly destined for destruction, while others are being put to new uses.
Of course, Macclesfield Minibus hire can also be used to visit various attractions that are set in the pretty countryside that surrounds Congleton. Visitors to the area will find a good selection of National Trust properties begging to be visited. If you are looking for a relaxing and historically interesting day out, Little Moreton Hall is the place to head; this moated manor house is built in the classic English Tudor domestic architectural style and is known for being one of the finest timber-framed manor houses in the UK.
Meanwhile, Nether Alderley Mill on Congleton road is a fine example of a typical 15th-century mill and is open for visitors to see the mill in full working operation and this is a great place to visit before the driver of your Coach Hire Macclesfield takes you back home.
