Mid Cheshire is a former United Kingdom Parliamentary constituency. It was created upon the abolition of North Cheshire and South Cheshire in 1868 and the redivision of Cheshire into Mid Cheshire, East Cheshire, West Cheshire and Stalybridge. In 1885, the first three of these were abolished and re-divided into eight constituencies: Altrincham, Crewe, Eddisbury, Hyde, Knutsford, Macclesfield, Northwich and Wirral.
