This part of town extends
from the canal aqueduct to the hill in Henshall
Road (before its junction
with South West Avenue) and is dual centred, on
Wellington Road at its junction
with Garden Street and Hawthorn
Road (left), and a
couple of hundred metres away around the Bayleaf
Indian Restaurant (previously the Waggon & Horses Inn)
on the junction of Wellington Road, Henshall
Road, and Grimshaw Lane. The oldest
building here is Bollington Hall Farm, half way between the two centres.
While stone is used in many buildings, brick is also commonplace with
some buildings using it for back and sides and the more modern houses
being all in brick. However, the mills were built in stone. The only
one remaining here is Adelphi Mill. Waterhouse
Mill was demolished
in the 1960s and replaced with the modern Kay Metzeler factory.
Other notable locations include St. Gregory's
Church; the Methodist Church; the Town Hall; the Arts Centre; the Civic Hall with the Library beneath; the course of the old
railway, now known as the Middlewood Way; the recreation ground; the small community at
the end of Adlington Road.
Going up the hill on Henshall Road towards the junction with South West Avenue marks
the boundary with Bollington Cross.
