Macclesfield : Michelin's recommendations


For more than two centuries, Macclesfield was synonymous with silk, produced in approximately 100 local mills. The story of silk is entertainingly and expertly told in two museums: the Silk Museum, housed in the town's Georgian Sunday School building, and Paradise Mill, where guides demonstrate early-19C Jacquard handlooms with punched card controls. These are in fact the distant ancestors of today's computers.
