Filled with history and character, Holmes Chapel has an impressive array of listed buildings including St Luke's Church (see image right) which is Grade I listed and built in about 1430. The Grade II Twemlow Viaduct to the north-east of the village is a spectacle (see the front cover image) - dated 1841, it was built to span the River Dane and can still be enjoyed today in all its glory.
Holmes Chapel has a close association with the nearby town of Middlewich which hosts an annual folk and boat festival which attracts 400 narrowboats and thousands of visitors each year over three days.
