White Nancy

White Nancy is a 15-foot high stone landmark that stands proudly at the top of Kerridge Hill, overlooking the village of Bollington. It is visible from miles around. It was built in around 1815 as a summerhouse for the Gaskell family, who lived at the nearby Ingersley Hall, possibly to commemorate the Battle of Waterloo.

 

From Nancy fantastic views of the surrounding countryside can be enjoyed, and when it is clear, visitors are also rewarded with sights of the Manchester cityscape, Jodrell Bank, Winter Hill in Lancashire and Snowdonia in Wales.
