Moss Brow was the original road from the main route at
Bollington Cross to Lowerhouse and

path along the front of Long Row terrace.
At the Bollington Cross end
there are old stone cottages and a house on one side and
more modern detached houses opposite.

||Moss Brow is a very old country lane and that part of it
which travels through fields is, other than the tarmac surface,
very probably much as it was many hundreds of years ago, and
the hedges are equally ancient. On an old map it is marked
as Moss Lane and was probably part of the route that now includes
Moss Brow and Moss Lane. The word brow would normally refer
to the steep bit at the Bollington Cross end. See Brows.
