Wilmslow is a town in Cheshire, England, situated to the south of Manchester between Alderley Edge and Handforth. Most housing is large and expensive in nature. Wilmslow is part of the Borough of Macclesfield. It is well known, like Alderley Edge, for having many famous residents, notably footballers, stars of Coronation Street and rich Manchester businessmen. It is an affluent area. The local Aston Martin dealer's sales account for more than one-fifth of the UK sales of £100,000-plus Astons. Wilmslow is a desirable area in which to live, and is part of the so-called Golden Triangle in the north west together with Hale and Bowdon. It grew in popularity in the Victorian era as a most desirable area for wealthy Manchester businessmen to move out to once the railways arrived and connected the towns.
