- / Discover Bollington
As a major centre for cotton spinning in the 19th and 20th centuries, Bollington boasts a rich heritage which can still be seen in its old converted mills and canal network. Nicknamed the ‘Happy Valley’, Bollington sits on the South-Western edge of the Peak District with its iconic landmark, White Nancy rising above the Town on top of Kerridge Hill. We are where the peaks meet the plains.
