Wilmslow - The Carrs & Around

The Carrs is a parkland area that follows the River Bollin. It runs parallel with Hawthorne Lane. (You can get a better idea from the town map.)

The Bollin. Somewhere near this point there once stood a silk mill. Click here to see the Carrs in flood.

You can just see the tennis courts in the background.

There's a small car park at the Styal end of the Carrs; when full you could park at the mill; or you could always park on top of the sign. Click here to see this area in the wet.

Gorsey Road

Pownall Hall School is at one end of Gorsey Road.

It is a private school housed on the site of what was originally a 13th century manor house. It was built by James Pownall in the 1830's. In 1885 it was sold and became the home of Henry Boddington, of Boddington's Beer fame. Click on the picture to see the school's nameboard.
