It is in Cheshire (which was once called Chester Shire), which is in the midlands of Engand. It is virtually now a suburb of Manchester. The town is Wilmslow, which is in the Macclesfield area (N.E. part of Cheshire) (S.W. of the city of Manchester). You could probably do a search for Pownall Hall School, which is in Wilmslow (Wimslow?). The school is now in a house that a Pownall who was mayor of Liverpool back in the 1800's or so owned after he retired to after serving in that office. There are still lots of Pownalls in the Wilmslow area.
