Macclesfield Silk Heritage Trust


We are the Macclesfield Silk Heritage Trust, an independent charity established in 1987 to champion the incredible history of Macclesfield and the surrounding area through our collections and museums, which today include The Silk Museum, Paradise Mill, West Park Museum, and The Old Sunday School.

Our vision is to create an innovative and exciting museum and heritage offer for Macclesfield, providing inspiring experiences for our visitors through our unique collections and remarkable heritage buildings.

Our mission is to celebrate and share the extraordinary story of Macclesfield; a story of creativity, industry and enterprise.

The Heritage Centre displays illustrate how Macclesfield developed and grew from a market town to an important player in the Silk Industry and shows the range of mills that thrived here. Includes a cafe and shop, plus meeting rooms which are available for hire.

Please see website for further details.
