Bollington. This is where we lived for the last sixteen years, a fantastic town in East Cheshire, set 20 miles south of Manchester, near Macclesfield, but not really near anywhere; a splendid place to raise a family, go for a walk, own a dog, and preferably, do all three (I never got the dog).
According to Wikipedia…
Bollington is a small town and civil parish in the county of Cheshire (County Palatine of Chester), England, in the unitary authority of Cheshire East,to the east of Prestbury.
According to the 2001 UK census, Bollington had a population of 7,095 (7593 in 2011 census), it certainly has too many cars, and I should think not enough affordable housing.
The helpful man walking to the right below is setting off to that very landmark……a spot we have all climber to thousands of times over the years!
Bollington is beautiful, I will add to these snaps over the years as I go through my files, but here are a few to get you started – walking up the hills towards Kerridge at the back of our house, after a bad day, you can be walking in lovely fresh air within minutes.
