But why 'Treacle'?
Macclesfield is known as Treacletown, referring to the centuries old accident when a horse drawn wagon over
turned, spilling it's cargo of treacle onto the cobbles. The Treacle Market is a chance to find gorgeous unusual things
on Macclesfield's streets once again. Just less sticky.
