On a Historical Note
Rochdale Town Hall
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, recently promoted to League One in 2010 (narrowly missed the play-offs to
the Championship in 2011).
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.
One note. Salford is actually a City. Like London which has the rare status of
having two cities in one, City of London and the City of Westminster,
Manchester also boasts the same status, the City of Manchester, and the City
of Salford. All four cities have been designated by Queen Victoria with City
Status, due to the the existent of a Catherdral.
In 2011, the town centre is in total dis-array, due to the extended
construction of Britain's first modern tram link (ie the Manchester Metrolink)
from Manchester into Rochdale.
