At which Macclesfield church did Olympic gold medal winning cyclists Laura Trott and Jason Kenny get married?
Olympic cycling stars Laura Trott and Jason Kenny were married at a stunning 175-year-old Catholic church near their Cheshire home. They kept the date and location of their wedding a close secret, revealing that they got married at St Alban’s Catholic Church in Macclesfield. The church is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade II* listed building. It was designed by A. W. N. Pugin and is described as a "church of exceptional interest among the works of this major architect".
