On a Historical Note
|Rochdale Town Hall||Rochdale Pastimes||Canal between Rochdale and Todmorden||Littleborough in winter|
Rochdale is located in a valley at the foot of the Pennine Moors, and at the foot the highest motorway in England, the M62 at Saddleworth Moor.
Rochdale is the birthplace, and today's head office, of the Co-Op, and birthplace of Gracie Fields and Lisa Stansfields, and don't forget Rochdale FC.
Rochdale is also very famous for it's Town Hall (see first picture above). It's Victorian gothic design is twinned with that of Manchester Town Hall. Very few towns in the United Kingdom, and the world, can boast of such exquisite gothic, Victorian achitecture.
The surrounding areas are very popular for tourists together with some outstanding beauty. The market town of Todmorden, just a few miles away in West Yorkshire, is notorious for UFO sightings. Denshaw and Dent, just over the hills in West Yorkshire, take you to another world, typical northern villages, reminiscent of the industrial past. Hebden Bridge, (again West Yorkshire) just 30 minutes drive away, is a thriving tourist town for canal users, bikers, hippies, and all. Snake Pass, at Glossop (Derbyshire) is 30 minutes drive away, due to effective motorway connections. Towns within 30 minutes drive also include Lancashire (Oldham, Littleborough, Bacup, Bury, Bolton), Cheshire (Ashton-under-Lyne, Stockport, Altrincham, Sale), and West Yorkshire (Huddersfield and Halifax).
Beyond, within 1 hours drive, is the Heart of the Peak Disrict at Edale, Haworth (birthplace of the Bronte Sisters), Pendle Moor (notorious for witches), Skipton (at the foot of the Yorkshire Dales), Accrington, Blackburn, Burnley, Bradford, Clitheroe, Keithley, Leeds and Wigan.
Also, Rochdale's central location within the United Kingdom, makes it an ideal base to tour the whole of Northern England and Southern Scotland. Within 1.5 and 2 hours drive is Liverpool City Centre, the Wirral, Sheffield, Harrogate, York, Chester, Blackpool, Snowdonia in North Wales, the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales, the North Yorkshire Moors, Scarborough, and more. If you drive fast enough you can reach the Scottish Borders, and Newscastle-upon-Tyne in 2 hours. Glasgow is 3.5 hours drive away.
Let's not forget Rochdale's big brother, Manchester, the Metropolitan County with whom we are a part of, as are Oldham, Bury, Bolton, Ashton, Wigan, Stockport, Trafford and Salford.
Rochdale's Modern Times
Rochdale is now part of the Manchester's Metrolink tram network, even though it is still 4 times quicker to get to Manchester via the traditional rail service (just 15 minutes as opposed to 1 hour via the tram which goes via Oldham).
