Welcome

The modern Parish of Henbury lies on the outskirts of Macclesfield, separated from it by a region of Green Belt. The 1,400 acres are mostly given over to agriculture, and at the geographic centre lies Henbury Hall, a modern (1986) country house built in the Palladian style with carefully landscaped gardens, park and polo field.

The village of about 250 dwellings is located to the north of the A537.  The picturesque 19th Century St Thomas’ Church on the north side of the main road has a Church Hall (built 1979) that plays a central part in community life, the venue for many activities and functions, some of which are organized by local members of ‘The Henbury Society’ and the ‘Henbury Events Committee’.

Village Website - Urgent Request

I have now moved from Henbury and am no longer living in the Henbury area. I am still seeking a volunteer to take over the role of webmaster and would appreciate a Henbury resident taking over the website.

 

I would like to reassure anyone considering taking on this role that it is not an onerous task and it is very easy to manage the 'technicalities' of inputting information onto the site.  I am very willing to show any interested party what managing the website entails and to act as a support until the person feels comfortable in 'going it alone'.

 

Please contact me as soon as possible on 07710 279420 or 01625 250762 if anyone would like to discuss this further.
