Healey Dell Nature Reserve & Tea Rooms

Healey Dell is a beauty spot and Local Nature Reserve, rich in natural history andindustrial archaeology, two miles from Rochdale town centre on the way to Whitworth and Bacup.

The River Spodden has carved its way through the landscape down the thousands of years, creating delightful woodland scenery and spectacular waterfalls which once powered ancient corn, wool and cotton mills.

A disused 1800s railway line is now a nature trail with magnificent views from a 100-foot high viaduct.

With over 3 miles of paths, most of which is accessible  to wheelchairs, pushchairs and motobility scooters, Healey Dell is an ideal place for all the family.

Trail maps can be downloaded from the website.
