  • Note: Handforth is situated approximately 12 miles due south of Manchester on the A34 in the beautiful county of CHESHIRE. Handforth, originally Handforth-cum-Bosden, was for many years in the parish of Cheadle with which it has historical links. The origin of the name is usually ascribed to 'Hanna's Ford' and goes back to Saxon times when such a crossing was on the nearby River Dean. The first mention of Handforth was in a charter which is dated between 1233 and 1236. During the crusades, Handforth acquired its own Coat of Arms, which displays the Honford Star. Henry de Honford painted a silver star on his black shield after seeing a brilliant star fall from the sky during a night attack on the Saracens.
