Wilmslow is a town in Cheshire, England, that is 11mi south of Manchester. The area, which lies between Handforth and similarly affluent Alderley Edge, is known for its upmarket lifestyle and its many rich and famous residents. It is one of the most sought-after places to live in the UK after central London, and falls within the Cheshire Golden Triangle. It has one of the highest proportions of wealthier residents in the North of England. The town has boutique shops, cafes and restaurants, and high-marque car showrooms which cater for those associated with the "Cheshire Set" lifestyle.The population of Wilmslow was 30,326 in the 2001 Census. The town is in the parliamentary constituency of Tatton, represented by Conservative George Osborne, the Chancellor of the Exchequer.HistoryToponymyWilmslow derives its name from Anglo-Saxon Wīghelmes hlāw = "mound of a man called Wīghelm."Lindow ManMuch about the local Iron Age history of Wilmslow was uncovered with the discovery of Lindow Man, in Lindow Moss. Preserved in the peat bogs for 2000 years, Lindow Man is one of the most important Iron Age finds in the country. Despite a campaign to keep Lindow Man in the area, he was transferred to the British Museum and is a central feature of the Iron Age exhibition. Lindow Man returned to Manchester Museum in April 2008 for a year-long exhibition.
