White Nancy is a folly located near to Bollington in Cheshire, close to where Ben Kelly lives. It is 18 ft high and was built by John Gaskell Junior of Ingersley Hall, around 1817 to commemorate the victory of the Duke of Wellington at the Battle of Waterloo. White Nancy Folly stands on the saddle of Kerridge ridge, 918 feet above sea level, overlooking the village of Kerridge and the town of Bollington and from which, on a clear day, it is possible to see Snowdonia in Wales. In its original state White Nancy Folly would have had a door and windows. Inside stood a stone table and circular stone bench and it is believed the Gaskell family enjoyed using it for picnics looking out at the wonderful views.
