Nanny Redhead's to Old Bold Hall,Bold Heath.

Recommended Posts

Has anyone got any information about her or heard of Nanny Redhead?

I looked on Google but nothing came up.

I'm posting some pictures of the house of the infamous lady who used to frighten us with tales going around about her with a rifle at the window. 

As kids we used to walk down Hall Lane looking for conkers as kids did then,off Gorsey Lane(between Clock face and Bold) but as we used to get towards her house with the long Ivy all over it we used to go back.

The only info i got is that in the 70's a family lived next door to us in Reginald Rd,Jean Redhead as i known her as and also worked in Sutton Corn Stores on Junction Lane.

Jean Redhead was apparently i was told a relation,either sister or cousin of Nanny Readhead.

If anyone remembers Jean Redhead she used to teach a parrot named Bimbo to swear and it did in the pet shop.

Anyway Whalley Ashcroft the owner gave it to her...i heard it :o  :thumb:

Any info of Nanny would be appreciated,i will post what i did.

Here is Nanny Redhead's house on Hall Lane,off Gorsey Lane,Bold.

My mate walked away as i said i'm knocking on the door to ask can i get some pictures.

A guy answered at the top bedroom window and i explained about the story when we was kids and i document all around our town,he was great and allowed me to get some pictures.

He even said i could go in and he would introduce me to Nanny Redhead (she must be stuffed and mounted) :) but i declined.

He told me this stone was moved over due to having a bedroom window made and put in.

Next to the house is Griffin Wood.

If you like the outdoors this is a cracking walk.

Robbob.When I started at the Mersey and Weaver River authority in 1970s we were based at the now UU HQ .There was a garage next door and a bit further to the side was a bungalow.There were some weird tales about the person who apparently lived or had lived in the bungalow. Noting your foto of the Griffin.That was one of our pubs for visitors we took to.You seem to be widening your travels?
