White Nancy, Bollington

#127 of 375 in Things to do in Cheshire
White Nancy is a local icon, purported to have been built around 1814 by the Gaskill family as an homage to the battle of Waterloo. Used as a summerhouse, the little building sitting on top of Kerridge hill, can be seen for miles around and is the much loved icon of Bollington. Bollington, also known as 'Happy Valley' is home to artist Debra Tracey, who works from her canal side studio, producing an array of White Nancy themed arts and crafts.

Debra also runs 'The Creative Space Studio', a well known provider of creative activities for the community and local workshops.

    A nice peaceful place and stunning views in all directions. Only issue is that it's a steep trek to get there, but well worth the effort once at the top. Also I liked the new look of White Nancy 👍
