This Week's Footprint on the Ridge - Mary Aldersey

Mary 5

This week's 'Footprint on the Ridge' is the remarkable story of an independent Victorian woman, widowed twice and who, on the 1841 Census, was listed as 'Farmer' on the Cheshire Sandstone Ridge.

That woman was Mary Aldersey.

Whether Mary was typical, we will never know but a fascinating story all the same.

CLICK HERE to read her story and the stories of others related to the diverse heritage of the Ridge — their shared experiences form a valuable reference point and contribute to the irreplaceable collective and diverse memory of the Cheshire Sandstone Ridge.
