Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on December 19, 1949.

The crozier and crowns are those of St. Benet-at-Hulme. The dancetty chief is from the arms of the Paston family and the cross flory from the arms of Lord Nelson. The green sheaves on gold indicate agriculture and "early growth".

The Griffin is also from the heraldry of the Paston family, and the radiant sun refers to the healthy nature of the district.

The arms are currently used by the town council.
