Originally the front cover of a book, Rochdale As it Was By Jack Milne and John did a great job of touching it up
Paul Jones The large building is where the Regal moon now stands, banks to the left and the original bridge which stood at the bottom the now Yorkshire street, you can still see the bank sign where Bull Brow stands…

Julian Smith The area around the town hall is going to be cleared of cars so events will have enough space there. People like water, and bridges, Rochdale has space to spare in the town centre, we need less space and more people. As for cleaning the river, united utilities is already on to that, at Smithy bridge and Mark street, huge new works going on.

Clive Rushton Is there really still a debate about bringing/not bringing back the river? It absolutely is a no-brainer decision.

  1. That’s “brew”, Lanky for hill. They have them in Bolton, too! Rochdale road in Shaw is a big one! Must have been a fair climb for the Stagecoach horses, no wonder they changed them at the Fairview. The old farmyard gatepost is still at the Black Horse in Shaw.
