On the border of the Peak National Park, the village of Rainow is situated three miles to the east of Macclesfield on the Chapel-en-le-Frith road. Bounded by Kerridge Ridge on one side and the Buxton Road on the other it runs towards the moors and Pennines. The hills and stone buildings are a sharp contrast to the old brick and softer countryside of the Cheshire Plain. Although stretching over many miles, the present village does have a centre where the church, school and village institute are all within easy reach of each other.
White Nancy stands on the Kerridge Ridge. Resembling a whitewashed sugar loaf it was built in remembrance of the battle of Waterloo by the Gaskell Family of Ingersley Hall.
A strong community spirit exists in the village and this is reflected in the success of the many organisations and activities available.
