Three Roman coins were found at the junction of Massie Street and the High Street, which together with other Roman finds around the village indicate that a Roman road may have passed through Cheadle travelling north to Manchester.
Whilst digging foundations for houses on Massie Street, in 1872, workmen found three Bronze Age urns - which they broke. These are believed to indicate that the area was once a an ancient burial site.
The far end of the present car park from Massie Street, was the site of the village Fire Station. The fire engines on their way to an emergency had to negotiate a narrow access Road onto the High Street with their bells ringing as a warning to pedestrians and vehicles.
