History[edit]

Adlington Hall

Adlington was a chapelry and township in Prestbury ancient parish.[4] It became a separate civil parish in 1866, and had slight changes to its civil parish boundaries in 1936.[4] It was in Hamestan hundred, which later became Macclesfield Hundred and, later still, was assigned to be part of Macclesfield Poor Law Union and Rural Sanitary District.[4] When Macclesfield Rural District council was established in 1894, Adlington became a civil parish within it.[4][5] In 1974, local government re-organisation led to it becoming part of the Borough of Macclesfield.,[6] which in turn was succeeded by Cheshire East Council in 2009.[7]

Adlington Hall, dating from at least the end of the 13th century, is located at the western end of the village.[8]

Adlington made the news in January 2008, when a delivery vehicle shed 18 tonnes of mango chutney onto the road through the village. A spokesman for F Swain and Sons, the company which owns the lorry, said: "It was just one of those things."[9]

Governance[edit]

Adlington Parish Council, which administers the civil parish, is made up of ten parish councillors and one parish clerk.[2] The parish council sits each month, and at these meetings, the two borough and single county councillor will also often attend.[2]
