The cafe, Boggart Hole Clough, Manchester
Boggart Hole Clough occupies 190 acres. The word "clough" is a northern expression for a steep sided valley and the site has many by ravines and gullies within this remnant of ancient forest. In 2007 it was designated as a Local Nature Reserve. A Boggart is a mythological creature sometimes described as a "household fairy". Generally mischievous they are blamed for curdling the milk and playing tricks on people. They are thought to live under bridges, like trolls, on sharp bends in roads and, in this case, in woodland.
