Congleton is a small town with a big heart…
The Congleton Borough runs five leisure centres, three swimming pools and an 18 hole golf course complemented by two 9 hole and three 18 hole private courses.
Congleton and Sandbach are ancient Market Charter towns, while Middlewich, once a Roman industrial settlement, was established to exploit the area’s rich salt deposits. It is also within easy reach of the Cheshire Plain, Peak District, Lake District and the Welsh mountains and coast
In a a recent survey carried out by Barclays Private Clients in May 2003, Congleton was placed thirty first in the “real wealthiest” places to live in England. The survey looked at the average salary in each area and then took into account the local cost of living to work out the real disposable income. The reasearch found that the top ten places in the survey were all in the North-West.
During the summer months, a stroll through the Public Parks (including The historic Congleton Park) will find you amazed with the floral colours and displays. All thanks to Congletons green fingered council team. Children will also love the many play areas around the borough too.
If it is cycling or walking you are looking for or other outdoor pursuits such as golf, fishing and bird watching, then the natural beauty and landscape of the Congleton area can provide the perfect backdrop.
