GENUKI gives the following details:
Bollington was a township in the ancient parishes of Bowdon and Rostherne in Bucklow Hundred which became a civil parish in 1866. In 1981 the civil parish was renamed Little Bollington (redirected here). It includes the hamlet of Spode Green. The population was 202 in 1801, 300 in 1851, 215 in 1901, 175 in 1951, and 162 in 2001.
Wikipedia adds that the Bridgewater Canal runs through the western side and Dunham Park lies to the north east.
- The GENUKI and UKBMD pages on Cheshire and its parishes point to many other sources of information on places within the county. The many small parishes and townships that existed before 1866 are treated individually as well as the larger towns and conurbations.
- A Vision of Britain through Time provides a series of maps from the Ordnance Survey illustrating the towns and villages of Cheshire and also the borders between parishes. The following group of maps provide views of the county at various dates, illustrating the changes in administrative structure.
- Cheshire Archives and Local Studies have organized a facility to compare 19th century maps (including tithe maps circa 1830) with modern Ordnance Survey maps. These are available for every civil parish. The detail is very magnified and it is difficult to read any placenames on the older maps. Cheshire Archives and Local Studies are the local keepers of historical material for the county.
