Welcome to the North West England web page.
We have 17 Counties in the Region, which stretches form the Scottish Border to Staffordshire & Shropshire in the south. It is also bordered by the Irish Sea, with the Isle of Man being part of the Region boasting 3 Guilds, and the Welsh border to the west and Northumbria, Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Staffordshire to the east. There are Guilds in all counties - in the large cities, market towns and even villages. We have 114 Guilds and over 2,000 members.
A large area of the Region is rural with some beautiful scenery and superb walking country with interesting places to visit..We also have Manchester and Liverpool with their Symphony Orchestras, art galleries and theatres, together with magnificent buildings and historical areas, not to mention the shopping.
