Macclesfield is located where the Cheshire plain gives way to the Peak District. It was first recorded under the name “Maclesfeld” in the Domesday Book of 1086. Its name is probably from a local landowner of the time. Two centuries later it was granted a charter. The Church of All Saints was built shortly afterwards, where St Michael’s Church now stands in the centre of town.
Macclesfield regained some measure of international fame in the late 20th century as the home of members of the late 1970s rock band Joy Division, which evolved into popular 1980s dance band New Order after lead singer Ian Curtis hanged himself in his Barton Street home in 1980.
Fans of Joy Division come to Macclesfield from all over the world, especially every 18 May, the anniversary of his death, to pay their respects at his grave marker in Macclesfield Cemetery. Control (2007), a film about Curtis’s life and death based on his widow’s memoirs, was filmed using many of the same Macclesfield locations in which he lived. (Wikipedia)
