Rainow Parish Council

Most of the village of Rainow sits astride the B5470, some three miles north-east of Macclesfield in Cheshire, and about three hundred metres above sea level.

To the east are the sprawling moorlands and hills of the Peak District National Park and, to the west, the Cheshire plain rolls out to the Dee and Mersey estuaries.

Manchester, which is 17 miles to the North, and London, which is 180 miles to the South, are both directly accessible by train from Macclesfield railway station.

Manchester International Airport is thirty minutes away by car.
