Werneth Low

The name Werneth derives from the Welsh Verno for alder meaning 'the place where alders grow'. The term "Low" does not refer to any lack of Height. It is a Northern English word for hill.

This is the reason why Alder Community High School was so named, due to its proximity to Werneth Low.
