A quaint market square which has not been spoilt by local development. Still used for markets today. A number of listed buildings around the square, including the Saxon crosses.

Home to some historic (but not significant) buildings, the Saxon crosses and the War memorial the Market Square is worth a look if you are in Sandbach town centre but is not worth going out of your way for at all.

Just wander around this lovely tranquil area! Take a seat and contemplate the ancient monument and wonder what stories could be told! They used to park cars here but now they leave it open. Enjoy the pubs, open at many different time,and restaurants and coffee...More

Thanks to the council's efforts to maintain an historic site, the square perfectly blends modern shopping with the need to remind people of their heritage.

Cute little market square, surrounded by several pubs and a cocktail bar. There is a market held on a thursday which makes the town very busy, but adds to the feeling.
