656 Morley Green, Wilmslow

Peat from Lindow Moss was used mainly for potting compost, but amazingly was also an ingredient of a beauty product. So if you had pampered yourself with "Essence of Time" you would be very well preserved - after all Lindow Man has lasted nearly 2000 years. This little piece of quiet countryside on the very edge of Wilmslow will come as a surprise if you have not explored round here before.
