White Nancy

Hilary was able to join me for a few hours in Bollington today so, after lunch, we set off in the rain for a walk up to White Nancy.
Marked on the OS Map and clearly visible from miles around in a prominent position on the end of the Kerridge Hills it dates from the 19th Century and is thought to have been erected to commemorate the Battle of Waterloo.
It was certainly renovated in 2012 and now marks the Diamond Jubilee of Mrs Betty Windsor. (Gawd bless 'er)
Even so, it's well worth the steep, uphill walk if only for the views. I was going to show you a photo or two, but Blogger's not doing photos tonight (at least not from here).
