Round Gardens

A very short street which was probably part of the main route through the town before Palmerston Street was built. It bridges the join between Palmerston Street and Wellington Road and is less than 100m long; the street passes round the back of the Dog & Partridge. It contains a variety of interesting old stone houses.

Approach off Palmerston Street, Wellington Road or Adlington Road.

Nearest shops - further up Palmerston Street, further down Wellington Road.

Nearest pubs - encompasses the Dog & Partridge. The Vale Inn is down Adlington Road.

Council Ward - Central.

The little building (left) behind the Dog & Partridge used to be Bollington's town prison! Bollington's police station was close by on the corner of Adlington Road (below).
