    Reaching a depth on 30 meters, Rostherne Mere is a natural lake covering 48 hectares. ‘All kinds of legends are current about Rostherne, as is the case with most lakes which are reported to be deep. One is, that a mermaid comes up on Easter Day and rings a bell ; another, that it communicates with the Irish Channel by a subterranean passage; another, that it once formed, with Tabley, Tatton, Mere, and other lakes, a vast sheet of water that covered the country between Alderley Edge and High Leigh.’ [The Legendary Lore of the Holy Wells of England by Robert Charles Hope (1893)]
