Twemlow Parish 

In the heart of Rural Cheshire

Welcome to Twemlow Parish Council's Website


The Parish of Twemlow is situated in the Dane Valley Ward of Cheshire East Council – and is approximately 18 miles south of Manchester. 

Twemlow Green is seen as the centre of the Parish. Twemlow borders the villages of Goostrey, Holmes Chapel, Lower Withington and Cranage. The tiny parish comprises just 94 homes and its residents enjoy the tranquillity and beauty of the Twemlow countryside as well as its accessibility to the M6 in Holmes Chapel.

The two largest employers in the Parish are Terra Nova School, a well-regarded independent co-educational school and the Yellow Broom, a prestigious restaurant which also opens as a delightful café in the summer months.

The Twemlow railway viaduct over the River Dane built in 1841 is a key feature of the Parish on the boundary with Holmes Chapel. It is a Listed Building and carries the electrified railway from Manchester – Crewe. It has been the subject of extensive refurbishment in 2016.

The internationally recognised Jodrell Bank Observatory – and its iconic Lovell Telescope - is located within approximately 500 metres of the boundary of the Parish. It is now also the HQ of the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) Organisation, co-ordinating telescopes in Australia and South Africa.
