Rochdale Heritage Society

Just back from a short trip to Rochdale for a meeting at Touchstones about re-forming the Rochdale Historical Society. We also saw an archaeological dig between Rochdale and Bury, Rochdale Town Hall, the site of Hunger Hill Hall and had a walk in Tandle Hill Country Park (see map). We stayed at Fernhill Barn Bed and Breakfast, which is very peaceful and comfortable.

The meeting was interesting, and some progress was made: it was decided to call the group the Rochdale Heritage Society, to include ecological/environmental interests, and the next meeting will be arranged shortly (and advertised locally). I think it will need the dedication and hard work of a few sensible people to keep the group focussed and ensure it gains some benefit for Rochdale’s heritage.

Last time we were in Rochdale, a couple of months ago, we trekked across the moors looking at some ancient sites (protection of these sites is part of the reason for re-forming the Rochdale Historical Society). We stayed at Fernhill that time as well, and spent one night at the Red Lion, Whitworth, where we felt very welcome and had a delicious full English breakfast.
