Bollington Themed Planters
Paying homage to the town where we first started our small family run business, we are making some limited runs of Bollington themed planters. A few local landmarks to kick things off. We welcome any and all ideas.
Machine cut and carefully hand finished; they make for perfect planters on table tops or windowsills. They can be used as cute little caddies too. You are only limited by your imagination!
This 18 foot high Grade II listed landmark standing on the top of Kerridge Hill is visible for miles around. It provides the image base for our very own company logo! Built in around 1845 it is thought to commemorate the Battle of Waterloo
Clarence Mill is a five-storey former cotton spinning mill in Bollington, Cheshire, in England. It was built between 1834 and 1877 for the Swindells family of Bollington. It was built alongside the Macclesfield Canal, which opened in 1831.
A 19 arch viaduct across the river Dean valley at Bollington used to carry trains from the Macclesfield, Bollington & Marple Railway. It was between 1869 until the Beeching reorganisation of the national railways during the late 1960's. It is now used solely for recretion
Begun in 1851 by Martin II and his brother George Swindells, the mill was named Adelphi in recognition of the Greek meaning of the word – brothers. It opened for business in 1856. Being located beside the Macclesfield Canal transport of raw cotton from Liverpool could be made to the door, as well as being able to dispatch finished goods.
