Macclesfield Rural District

Macclesfield Rural District

Macclesfield Rural District was a rural district of Cheshire, England from 1894 to 1974. All of it is now part of the borough of Macclesfield.

Macclesfield as a Municipal Borough and Bollington as an urban district formed an enclave which was surrounded by Macclesfield RD.

The district was formed in 1894 based on Macclesfield rural sanitary district by the Local Government Act 1894.

It was abolished under the Local Government Act 1972 in 1974 and became part of the new Macclesfield district.
