History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
A more recent structure is the half-timbered medieval hall of Little Moreton Hall, considered one of the finest examples of a medieval house in England.
Congleton has several fascinating ancient ceremonies. Among these is 'The Sweep's Bells', also known as 'St Peter's Chains'. In this ritual, performed on the eve of the feast of St Peter, people dance through the streets of the town with bells strapped to them, to proclaim the upcoming feast day.
