Welcome to Poynton

 

Poynton was a mining village which is often described today as “a small town with a village feel”. The Town is in a unique location surrounded by countryside, in the foothills of the Peak District, yet situated only 11 miles south of Manchester, which is only a 20-minute train commute from Poynton Station to the city centre.

More locally Poynton Park and Pool offers residents 50 acres of ‘Capability Brown-styled’ parkland with ancient trees, a spectacular pool and a surfaced circular path. Middlewood Way is a ‘greenway’ along the route of a disused railway line, and now a popular route for walkers, cyclists and horse riders. Macclesfield Canal can be accessed from Nelson Pit and footpaths from Higher Poynton link directly to Lyme Park.

In March 2020, a Cheshire-wide survey named Poynton as the best Town in Cheshire for community wellbeing when looking at indicators such as jobs, health, public spaces, schools, public transport, and culture.

New local road infrastructure means that Manchester Airport is a 10-minute car journey, with the Poynton Relief Road taking more traffic away from the town.

Poynton’s award-winning Shared Space scheme contributes to a thriving town centre with a design where vehicles and pedestrians have equal rights. This innovative scheme contributes to a vibrant and social street-scene.
