Macclesfield Forest and Wildboarclough is a civil parish in the unitary authority of Cheshire East and the ceremonial county of Cheshire, England.[1] It lies on the western fringe of the Peak District National park. The population of the civil parish taken at the 2011 Census was 189.[2]

The parish is small, so there is no parish council; instead, the residents hold a periodic Parish meeting.[1] The area consists mainly of reservoirs, woodland, farmland, and moorland. There are no centres of population, only a few villages and hamlets, most notably Wildboarclough and Langley.
