Life in the Golden Triangle of Wilmslow, Prestbury and Alderley Edge
With claims of more Champagne flowing in Alderley Edge, more Aston Martin's bought from Stratstone's of Wilmslow and more Millionaires per square mile in Prestbury, than anywhere else in the country, what more is needed to illustrate the levels of opulence that can be witnessed here on every street corner. It was no coincidence that the Beckham's chose to live in this area and that MTV had a TV Series 'Living on the Edge,' showing the privileged offspring who try and convince the rest of us that they are just normal teenagers with genuine feelings and growing-up pains. Hopefully, Whatsin-Wilmslow can help the remainder of us discover and enjoy the true rewards of living in such a privilged area of the country.
