Details

In 1817, when John Corry was writing his history, Macclesfield was the third most important town in Cheshire; it had been notable for its manufactures of silk and mohair buttons, but in the mid-18th century a number of silk mills were built, followed by cotton mills which brought prosperity and, in Corry’s opinion, a ‘deterioration of morals’. His history of the town is followed by short accounts of Congleton, Knutsford, Stockport, Buxton and Leek. Facsimile reprint. No jacket.
