By 1914 Bollington had a population of around 6000 people and was dominated by fine cotton spinning.The pinnacle of Bollington has to be White nancy. A small white cone-like house stands alone on top of a hill overlooking all of Bollington. It was built by the Gaskell family early in the nineteenth century.
