Mobberley is a semi-rural village and civil parish in the unitary authority of Cheshire East and the ceremonial county of Cheshire, situated between Wilmslow and Knutsford. Mobberley railway station lies on the Manchester to Northwich and Chester line and was opened on 12 May 1862 by the Cheshire Midland Railway which was absorbed by the Cheshire Lines Committee on 15 August 1867. Manchester Airport is located to the north, although part of Runway 2 is within the parish boundaries. According to the 2001 census the parish had a population of 2,546. Mobberley has an annual Rose Queen Festival, where a villager is crowned 'Rose Queen' and there are many other characters taken part in by adults and other children. It was started by Lily Green and the first Queen was Mary Richards. It is ever popular to this day (this year's Rose Queen was Daisy Fogg), despite a brief pause during the second world war.
