Things to see and do in Pott Shrigley
Pott Shrigley is a delightful small village located about one mile northeast of the small town of Bollington in northeast Cheshire.
Pott Shrigley is popular for a couple of reasons - in Spring the bluebells along the road up the hill towards Shrigley Hall are quite a sight. The other is the cricket club. This must be one of the most beautiful settings for a cricket ground anywhere in the world. The field is also the ideallocation for the extremely popular annual bonfire and firework display every 5th of November.
Pott has a long and interesting history. It has had for centuries a grand house, Shrigley Hall, which has been occupied by some influential people. The largest house in the parish, with wonderful views over the Cheshire plain, is the stately Shrigley Hall, originally built in the 14thC by the Downes family, who lived there for 500 years, and re-built on a grander scale in the early 19thC by William Turner. In the 1950s the estate was sold to the Salesians who used it for Catholic education and then sold it for conversion into an hotel in the 1980s. It remains, after several changes of ownership, an hotel with a country club featuring a fitness centre and a challenging golf course.
