Mill Cottages

(and Watson’s Yard)


A delightful terrace of stone cottages standing at right angles to High Street. There is a small mill at the far end. The other face of these cottages is in Watson’s Yard (below).

Approach off High Street.

Nearest shops – Palmerston Street.

Nearest pub – Spinner’s Arms.

Council Ward – Central.


The other face of the cottages is Watson’s Yard (left, looking towards High Street). Watson had a shop on High Street selling general provisions.

This area was also known as Pool’s Yard at one time. Perhaps it was quite normally known by the name of someone with a business here.


This street is in the Bollington Conservation Area. All properties are subject to Article 4 Direction.
