Little Bollington is a small village in north Cheshire, just outside the southern edge of the Manchester conurbation. The village is located at the northern tip of the area governed by Cheshire East Council.
The village has approximately 70 residential properties and a population of about 150 residents. The main settlement area consists of an estate of 30 former council houses set adjacent to a rural lane with a number of farmhouses and cottages. Other cottages and houses are situated over a fairly wide area on rural lanes and on the single main road which runs through the village. There is a primary school and a parish church, both situated on the main road. The school is well attended, drawing children from a wide catchment area, and the parish church has an active congregation led by a very committed vicar. It attracts a congregation from within the village and areas beyond.
