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’.

Liz Welton has indicated that due to other commitments she can no longer assist me with the Henbury website. I would be very pleased if someone else would consider taking her place to ensure that there is always someone available to up-date the website. I didn't have any experience of website management when I agreed to take over from Trevor but found it quite easy to pick up the 'technicalities' so please don't be afraid to volunteer if you think you would be interested.
Please contact me via the Webmaster icon if anyone wants a chat about what's involved.

Environmental Report 2012/2013
Please find attached a report from Simon Browne our local Tree Warden which gives an update on the work undertaken by Henbury residents on the Henbury Parish Council Environmental Project.
Simon is seeking volunteers for the next stage of the Project following the granting of another generous grant from the Parish Council and agreement from landowners that should allow us to plant over 300m of hedges this year, so all we need now is enough people to do it - the more the merrier.
Here are some provisional dates in the diary to start us off.
Sun Jan 19th am/pm
Sun Feb 2nd am/pm
Sat Mar 1st pm
Sun Mar 16th am/pm
If anyone can help please contact Simon as soon as possible on:
It's also worth mentioning that there will be a Millennium Green workday on Sat Feb 8th, so that's one for the diaries too. Please click on the link below for more information.
Henbury Summer Fete took place on the 15th June and was a great success. Some photos of the event, including a demonstration by the newly formed Line Dancing Group, can be seen below.
