Congleton

Congleton is a town in the county of Cheshire in the north west of England, on the banks of the River Dane. It is thought to have been a Roman settlement, and in 1272 it received its charter to hold fairs and markets. King Edward I granted permission to build a mill. Congleton became an important centre of textile production, especially lace and leather gloves.
