Sandbach is perhaps best known as the original home of Foden and ERF lorries, though neither company now exists in the town, 12-times National Brass Band Championship winners, Foden's Band, the ancient Saxon Sandbach Crosses, and Sandbach services on the M6 motorway.

Sandbach has an important historical feature on the cobbled market square, two Saxon Crosses that were reportedly built in the 7th, 8th or 9th century.
