The Rhododendrons of Wildboarclough

The Rhododendrons of Wildboarclough
Wildboarclough is a quiet little valley in the Pennines of eastern Cheshire. Someone, sometime, must have planted a rhododendron bush on this bank and look what happened.

Of local history (Macclesfield, Cheshire) interest the road though the valley was once the main road between Congleton and Buxton. It came via the Bosley Mills, round the edge of The Minns, passed Wincle Church and school (not sure if they were there then) and over into Wildboarclough itself. It joined the Macclesfield-Buxton road near the Stanley Arms pub. That changed about the 1770's when the present A54 was engineered passing Bosley Crossroads, Cleulow Cross and Allgreave. Imagine Wildboarclough today if all that heavy traffic was using it.
