History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
There are several historic houses nearby, including the Victorian mansion of Arley Hall, and the 15th-century manor house of Gawsworth Hall.
The parish church of St Michael is well worth a visit. It is largely 13th century and contains the chapels of the Legh and Savage families. In the Legh chapel you will find a memorial brass known as a 'Pardon Brass', dedicated to Roger Legh, who died in 1506.
