On the Staffordshire – Cheshire border near Biddulph, a hill rises to nearly 1100 feet above sea level and it is crowned by Mow Cop Castle, which is not really a castle! This Gothic folly in the shape of a ruined castle was erected in 1750 to gratify the whim of local landowner, Randle Wilbraham. This curious building is now in the care of the National Trust, and spectacular views can be had from the site.
