Visit Altrincham and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Altrincham, Cheshire. An industrial and residential centre close to Manchester, but still retaining its own individuality. The town was first granted borough status by Hamon de Massey, Lord of Dunham, in 1290, implying partial relinquishment of the traditional powers of the lord of the manor. It is recorded that since 1452 more than 500 mayors have been elected to office here. Today Altrincham is often chosen as the starting-point for visits to the many beauty-spots in the neighbourhood. Within walking distance of the town, towards the south west, are picturesque villages, ancient churches, and broad stretches of placid water reaching for miles across the countryside. In the environs is Dunham Massey park, where some of the trees in the beech avenue are said to be over 250 years old and a herd of deer roams as it has for centuries past. Dunham Massey Hall, seat of the Earls of Stamford and their ancestors the Booths, is a fine, mainly 18th-century quadrangular house of brick and stone.
At Ringway, about 4 miles south east of Altrincham, is Manchester Airport.
