The cottages at the top of the lane (white fronted in the picture left) were the Redway Inn before conversion back into cottages in the early 21stC. The field in the foreground was called `Gatley`s Meadow`. To the right of the cottages is a track leading up Betty`s Brew, as it was once known, to Kerridge Hill (pedestrians only) and White Nancy. To the left is a paved path to Bollington passing a row of five cottages once known as `Two Pence Ha`penny Row`in the early 1900s and birthplace of my (Linda Stewart`s) mother in 1937.
There are many footpaths in Kerridge, particularly between the village centre and the quarries along the hillside. All of these paths are paved with stone. They were heavily used when the quarries were at their peak, with large numbers of quarrymen walking to and from their work. There is a very fine example of a stone wall crossing stile in Redway (left). Several local walks are described on the Bollington Outdoors page.
