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’.


Saturday 8th October 10 am – 1 pm

Come and help us with the Autumn maintenance of the
Henbury Millennium Green. 

We will mainly be focused on tree felling and thinning the woodland areas to encourage new growth (and also to provide wood for the bonfire).


Wearing a pair of gardening gloves is recommended but not essential.  If you have any tools that you think would help with this work, please bring them with you.
