Situated in the ancient Hundred of Hamestan, the Domesday Book records the town as “Maclesfeld” and in 1183 it was referred to as “Makeslesfeld”. The English Place-Name Society gives its name as being derived from the Old English name, Maccel and field meaning `Maccels’ open country’.
Although “Silk Town” seems to be its preferred nickname Macclesfield’s traditional nickname is “Treacle Town” – supposedly from an incident when a load of treacle was spilt on Hibel Road, and the poor scooped it off the cobbles. However, this term is more widely associated with Nuneaton in Warwickshire. Another reason was that the mill-owners provided barrels of treacle for unemployed weavers. (source: Wikipedia)
