803 White Nancy, Rainow

Views, views and more views, White Nancy above Rainow is a magnet for everyone. The white cone on the summit can be seen for miles making this one of the most worthwhile summits in Cheshire. White Nancy has been decorated in many different ways including a Christmas pudding, a large red remembrance poppy and, on our last visit, a commemoration of the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo, with striking black silhouettes of soldiers all round the base.
