Arclid is a village and civil parish in the unitary authority of Cheshire East and the ceremonial county of Cheshire, England. It is about two miles east of Sandbach and five miles west of Congleton. The parish had a population of 199 according to the 2001 census,[1] increasing to 276 at the 2011 census.[2]

Listed buildings[edit]

There is one building in the parish that is listed by English Heritage. This is Arclid Hall Farmhouse, which dates from about 1700. The farmhouse is built in brick with a slate roof, it is in three storeys, and has a nearly-symmetrical five-bay front.[3] It is listed at Grade II, the lowest of the three grades of listing, which is applied to buildings that are "nationally important and of special interest".[4]

Legs of Man[edit]

The village pub, the Legs of Man, is situated on the Newcastle Road. A pub of the same name has stood here since the late 1860s, but the present building dates from 1939 and was designed by J. H. Walters. Originally the pub had a thatched roof, similar to the Bleeding Wolf at Scholar Green, but this caught fire in 1956 and was replaced with tiles. Today it has a mock-Tudor exterior and houses a separate restaurant. There is a large beer garden.[5][6]
