Heywood Courts

Heywood Courts, a Magistrates Court no longer in use, but you can get a feel of what they were like in these great images.

The Courts were above Heywood Police Station, the police cells were in the actual Police Station and the main court, No 1 Court…. was the only court that prisoners were taken to, direct from the cell area below. There were smaller courtrooms off the corridor in the first photo below.

The building is now called TOPS, Heywood’s old police now a business centre.

Honouring Our Fallen Heroes

Remembrance Day services to be held across the Borough

Residents across the borough will have chance to pay their respects to those who have given their lives in defence of the country at this year’s Remembrance Day Services.

Commemorations to salute the nation’s war heroes will be held on Remembrance Sunday (9 November), with six parades across the borough.

Representatives from the Navy, Army and Royal Air Force will join veterans and civic dignitaries for the parades, which will take place in Rochdale town centre, Heywood, Littleborough, Middleton, Milnrow and Wardle.

Members of the public are invited to attend to show their gratitude to servicemen and women down the decades.

Remembrance services - PAYING RESPECTS

The Mayor, Councillor Carol Wardle, said:

“This year will be particularly poignant as we will be commemorating 100 years since the outbreak of the First World War. As we remember all those who gave their lives and made huge sacrifices, the current operations in Afghanistan is a poignant reminder of the sacrifices our armed forces continue to make in order to preserve our freedom and I hope as many people as possible will join us for these ceremonies.”

And at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month (Tuesday 11 November) the Mayor, Councillor Carol Wardle, will lead a two minute silence, with prayers given by Reverend Canon Shackleton, at the town’s war memorial opposite the Rochdale Town Hall.

Honouring Our Fallen Heroes


Councillor Alan McCarthy, Lead Member for the Armed Forces said:

“The Royal British Legion does fantastic work, which it is really important to support and is encouraging everyone to wear their poppy with pride:

“It is so important we stop to remember the sacrifices made in the two wars and subsequent conflicts especially in this centenary year. The message of remembrance needs to be passed on to future generations. In Britain we remember those no longer serving, including those who have died for their country. It is a fundamental characteristic of human nature to remember and commemorate the fallen, not merely for the sake of our own peace of mind, but for the instruction of future generations that they might recognise the price of freedom.”

“Of course what we choose to remember, defines us both individually and collectively.
Remembrance functions on a number of levels, some deeply personal. It will mean different things to the comrade, the spouse, family, friends, children and grandchildren, – not forgetting the ordinary member of the wider society paying homage to the sacrifice of the fallen.”


Honouring Our Fallen Heroes

From the last week of October until 11 November the Royal British Legion will hold its annual poppy appeal. The money raised by the sale of poppies is used to support British servicemen and women. They can be bought at Rochdale Town Hall, online at and from shops, supermarkets, pubs and other locations across the borough.

Councillor McCarthy Added:

“As the generations that fought our two World Wars pass, the tradition that connects us to these events fades by degrees and the duty of remembrance devolves to those of us who thankfully have not known war. Until the day comes when nations learn how to resolve their differences without the exercise of military force, remembrance will be a permanent feature of our existence. The sacrifice of those who earned our freedoms is not forgotten.”

.At the Rochdale service a very special piece of innovative artwork will be unveiled – the ‘21st Century Cenotaph Viewpoint’ project produced by local artist John Cooke based on the Rochdale Cenotaph. Commissioned by Rochdale Township, the artwork will soon be available as a mobile display for local school and colleges.

  Barbara England Not quite sure how it comes into remembering Heywood, I know that Heywood is to all intents and purpose a part of Rochdale, but the people of Heywood still class Heywood as Heywood and not the sprawling mass that is Rochdale, forgive me if I am wrong bSee More
  Roy Taylor This is Heywood, Queens Park down by the river the foot bridge across to Plumpton Woods isn’t it Neil?
  Kathryn Spratt Looks like bottom of Queens Park to me when the river used to go Dow there
  Barbara England Not the penny bridge area.
  Colin Hurst It’s also the river Roach
  Barbara England If you check the structures on the opposite bank in the first picture, there is nothing that compares to them near the penny bridge nor has there ever been.
  Barbara England The second picture as the river flows you would have to have been stood between the Queens park road bridge, from that angle the woods climb to crimble, they don’t descend as this picture shows.
  Roy Taylor That’s got everybody talking!!
  Barbara England As I say, born and bred Heywood, that is not the park, I have taken photo’s around this area, and yet to come up with these views. The closest you would get to it would be Heap Bridge near Duxbury’s and I very much doubt that.

Some fantastic Bridges In Heywood photos from Harold Howarth
  Barbara England Not to be too boring the black and white pic is Queens Park road bridge. the third pic of the original three posted, when enlarged shows a pylon, never seen one in the park area, and on the far side of the bridge is a car, how did that get parked up iSee More


  Roy Taylor You are enjoying yourself Barbara, it could just be the other side of the Queens Park Bridge towards Bamford Road, there is another footbridge down there, is there not?


  Winnie Mandella You’re right Dave, not in Heywood.


 Barbara England Thanks Pete, I’ll sleep easy tonight, ever doubted myself, just trying to rack my brain as to where there was another similar bridge and kept coming up with a blank. Roy Taylor never seen one between Queens Park Road and Bamford Rd.
