A quick history

Sandbach dates back to Anglo Saxon times, and became a Christian town by the 7th century after the arrival of priests in the area. The town was mentioned in the Domesday Book as a settlement with its own church, and through the centuries the manor in Sandbach changed hands between a number of different families. It became a market town in the 16th century, and the traditional market still continues to this day.

Business and industry

Traditionally Sandbach has been known for its silk-making and ale brewing industries, along with its regular farmer’s market. Today it is mainly a commuter town, although there are a number of major employers in the local area including Cheshire East Council. Bentley are based in Crewe, just a short drive from the town, while other businesses within driving distance include Winsford Rock Salt Mine, Cheshire Police and Radius Payment Solutions.

Things to do in the area

Sandbach is surrounded by Cheshire countryside, from Brookwood to Brereton Heath Nature Reserve and Sandbach Park, so there are plenty of places to explore on foot or by bike. The town centre itself is home to a regular farmer’s market along with independent shops and cafes, ideal for a relaxing Saturday morning with the family.

If you’re moving to the area with young children, they’ll love visiting Congleton Museum, Congleton Paddling Pool and Alcumlow Hall Farm, while Chester Zoo is also nearby. For the grown ups, you can practice your golf swing at Sandbach Golf Club, go shopping at Cheshire Oaks designer outlet or cheer on Stoke City F.C at the bet365 Stadium.
