Bollington is South East of Wilmslow

White Nancy's origin is shrouded in mystery. There was some sort of edifice here around 1800 and a short while later the current structure was erected. It originally had a door and small windows and a local family of bigwigs came and sat in it on summer evenings. In recent times Bollington council sealed up the openings to discourage undesirables. You can see White Nancy from miles around and during World Wars one and two it was painted black (or green according to some accounts) to prevent the enemy navigating by it.

This is White Nancy which stands on a hilltop above the village of Bollington. It's called "White Nancy" because it's painted brilliant white. But when I photographed it a while ago it had been repainted for some celebration. It's now back to white again.
