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’.
Henbury Summer Fete 2016
I would like to thank everybody who helped in any way in the Summer Fete and all those who braved the weather and attended. The weather was dreadful, we've never had it so bad, but everyone kept there peckers up and pulled together to make the best of the difficult circumstances. We tried a few new things this year which seem to be well received and hope we can use them again in the future.
Sadly the profits were well down so our donations to the village amenities will have to be smaller this time but we cross our fingers and hope that next year will be a lot better!
Ann Cousin, Chairman, Henbury Events Committee.
The picnic area on the Henbury Millennium Green has been refurbished. Many thanks to the trustees who worked through the April hail storms to get it finished. Pictures can be seen on the Henbury Millennium Green facebook page https://www.facebook.com/HenburyMillenniumGreen/
