Mode Hill is the name given to the section of Clarke Lane around the row of cottages (left) and houses that includes the Lord Clyde pub. One of the oldest properties in the district is Mode Hill Farm.
The distinguished physicist Sir James Chadwick (1891-1974) was born in one of the cottages in Clarke Lane.
Clarke Lane was once known as The Lane of Bollington (1830/40). So, I wonder, who was Clarke, he who subsequently gave his name to the lane?
