Lindow Man: Gruesome discovery who became 'international celebrity'

Thirty years ago, a peat cutter working in the Cheshire countryside spotted what he thought was a piece of wood trundling along a conveyor belt.

Tasked with the job of keeping the belt free of debris, he threw it away, but as it hit the ground, the dirt fell from it and the remains of a human leg lay in the summer sun... continues...

E-mapping Victorian Cheshire

Map fans searching for monuments are sure to like this recently completed site - it's been produced so you can look at tithe maps particularly, but you can also look at 1870ish / 1910ish maps side by side with the modern OS map. You can zoom in and pan about to your heart's content.

Poynton Little Folk - Olde Cheshire Dialect

This page could be useful for figuring out local placenames.
Another part of Helena Kennedy's website promotes local studies in schools (including using real historical Cheshire placenames to devise new folklore) - and to keep the old dialect alive. She also has links to her paintings of various prehistoric sites.

The Bullstones (Stone Circle) — Fieldnotes

I made this far more difficult than it needed to be to find. Im based at Bosley and this is a few miles away. But I managed to take in quite a few unnecessary bumpy, windy country lanes before i found it. To be fair i had no form of OS map at all and google wasnt playing.
On the A54 heading from Congleton to Buxton take the first minor road left after The Four Ways motel. This road is Barlow Hill. Just before the junction with the left hand Withershall lane there is a layby with two public footpath signs. Take the southern one. Follow the FP across two small fields. The stone will appear on the horizon to your right.
I got here late afternoon and it was beautiful. The colours of the stone in the late afternoon sun were lovely. And postie was right, the way the stone reflects the silhouette of the mountain/hill beyond is worth note.
