The New White Nancy

Twas a lovely morning so we left mum at home and took a hike up to White Nancy to check out the new paint job.

First rest point ...

Elaine bonding with the friendly cows on the way up ...

Second rest break ...


And there she is the new paint job ... to celebrate the 200th Anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo.

(White Nancy was built in 1817 to commemorate the victory at The Battle of Waterloo).


Elaine nearly at the top ...


The views today were superb, it was the clearest day we have had up there ...



You could clearly see Manchester which is twenty miles away.  Between us, we managed to drop the camera once more and developed a black spot inside the lens for the ensuing photos ...

Bolly village ...

Our main memory of Bollington will be its fantastic location  surrounded by stunning hills, oh and the Spinners pub across the road!

  1. Love your pictures of heading up to White Nancy. I went up with our number one grandson last year - he ran, jumped, skipped, sprinted all the way, while I did more like Elaine ... When we were there White Nancy was white, so it's lovely to see the redecoration.
    Happy anniversary, by the way.
    Cheers, Marilyn (nb Waka Huia - and just arrived back in the UK from NZ - we'll be back on the boat next Tuesday after a visit to the grandsons in Scotland.)
