Welcome to my home page!

This page provides pointers into some of my interests. There are always pages under development so please be patient if you find that your particular interest is not yet here.

Bollington, Cheshire - the Happy Valley

Bollington
 almost every day!

My home town is known as the Happy Valley! These pages, while under continuous development, provide copious amounts of basic information as well as describing many of the interesting features of the town.

Bollington Pubs
My most popular pages!

These pages describe each of the pubs (plus a couple just out of town, three hotels and several restaurants and cafés) in this small Cheshire town. A map is provided to help you find those of your choice.

Bollington Civic Society

We have a thriving Civic Society which is going from strength to strength. Why not come to one of our meetings - details on the page.

Boddington Family 

Pages designed to bring together the world-wide Boddington family. Genealogical information will try to show how we are all related. Other pages will show our achievements over the past two or three centuries. Click here for the Boddington family home page! Under continuous development with a complete update of the page styles during 2009.

A very large addition covering the Bodington (one D) family has been made in 2009. Same link as above.

Adkins Family 

Pages designed to bring together the world-wide Adkins family. Genealogical information will try to show how we are all related. Other pages will show our achievements over the past two or three centuries. Click here for the Adkins family home page!

These pages are in continuous development and designed to bring together on the web the enormous amount of research work carried out by my late aunt, Evelyn Goodman nee Adkins.  I have carried out a complete update of the page styles during 2009.

During 2013 very large numbers of US Adkins are being added - see the home page for a full explanation.

Canals

The Macclesfield Canal  
The Macclesfield Canal Society
Macclesfield Canal history
Walks from the Macclesfield Canal

I have a special interest in the Macclesfield Canal. Extensive information is provided including in depth history researched and written by historian Graham Cousins.

Macclesfield Canal maps

Three maps of the canal together with a huge amount of information which will be of particular value to the boater. This is the master map for the canal society leaflet available from the boxes at Bosley sanitary station and Hall Green stop lock. The Internet maps are more up to date than the printed version.

Mary Sunley canal boat

This charitable enterprise provides canal trips for the disadvantaged.

Canals and Waterways in general

George's pages - the definitive index to the world of UK and international waterway information with pointers to individual waterways, organisations, boats, etc., etc. A link to every known waterway web page. If you can't find it here it hasn't been written yet!
