Sandbach history is officially recorded from as early as the Doomsday book, but a significant part of its history occurred prior to William the Conquerer.  In the 9th century local Saxons erected bejewelled Crosses to proclaim the Christian message and these famous Saxon Crosses still stand on the cobbles of the Market Square today.

Markets have been held in the town for many centuries and in 1579 Queen Elizabeth awarded Sandbach a market charter, which ensured the town’s prosperity.  The Charter Market takes place every Thursday, with regular Saturday markets and specialist markets taking place in the Town throughout the year.

Sandbach is home to a fantastic array of independent stores offering a wide variety of products, with café’s, restaurants and hostelries providing a tempting and diverse selection of food and drink for daytime and evening visitors to the Town.

Whether visiting the award winning parks and play areas, the ancient Saxon Crosses, shopping or watching the world go by from a local venue, keep an eye out for the wonderful Town Crier often in the Town Centre announcing news of events and activities before he travels around the Country to Town Crier competitions with his cries on Sandbach past and present.
