White Nancy

UK»England»Cheshire»White Nancy

Perched on a hilltop overlooking Bollington is a white landmark, a folly, called White Nancy. In 1999 the farmer who owned the land White Nancy stands upon kindly donated it to the people of Bollington, a local contractor restored her and laid a paved compass around her feet. Access is difficult, local people have laid steps up her 300ft north side and visitors must appreciate it is going to require a couple of stops both on the climb up and back down. The views from the summit are worth the climb.

Waulkmill Wood

Waulkmill Wood was purchased in 1996 with funding from several sources including the general public. This secondary woodland is sited on a steep slope and is part of a larger well known local beauty spot known as Ingersley Vale. The woodland is dominated by sycamore and beech, however other species such as oak, birch, lime, ash, rowan and horse chestnut can also be found. Species such as hawthorn, hazel and holly make up the shrub layer and the ground flora is made up of species such as bluebell, red campion and bramble. The woodland has direct links into an extensive public rights of way network that serves the area. This route runs north south through the wood and into the wider countryside of Kerridge Ridge and beyond.
