STREETWISE MAGAZINE

Welcome to our bumper

double issue covering

the months of August

and September

There’s so much going on locally and

once again we have been inundated with

information for our community pages.

We have a double page spread showing some

wonderful photos taken at this year’s Carnival, once

again thousands of people flocked the streets to

watch the procession and enjoy the entertainment

at Milnrow Memorial Park. A date for your diaries is

June 20th which is when next year’s Carnival will

take place. The theme is ‘Christmas in June!’ so you

have plenty of time to get your thinking caps on and

create some eye-catching outfits.

There’s a great article on page 52 about our

wonderful friend Jenny Neaverson, mother of two

young boys, who was diagnosed with cancer 18

months ago. Due to her immense bravery, positivity

and selflessness since her diagnosis, Jenny was

nominated by her friends to attend an Ascot

Ladies Day at Nutters sponsored by Revilo Homes.

She was chosen as a very worthy recipient and

thoroughly enjoyed her special day. Jenny is a true

inspiration to everyone who knows her.

We wish all the residents of Milnrow and

Newhey a very happy Summer. The October

issue will be dropping through your letterbox

around 3rd October.

Until October…

The nursery provides a stimulating, caring experience

for children and their families in Littleborough and the

surrounding areas. From Pre-school to our specially

created Dedicated Baby Area, our passionate and

experienced staff form close relationships with both

children and parents enabling them to provide the best

possible care and opportunities for the children to learn

and develop at their own pace.

The Dedicated Baby Area, provides a home-like, cosy,

loving environment where children grow and flourish. This enables babies to

independently explore and discover the world around them and play opportunities are

varied in order to enrich their experiences.

Toddlers and Nursery Room children have an extensive range of low-level activities and

resources such as construction, creative, role play, sand and water play and the book

corner. Children are able to access these areas independently

according to their individual preferences.

Nursery Room and Pre-school also take part in weekly Woodland

Explorer sessions, learning about the world around them.

There’s so much to see, why not make an

appointment to come and see for yourself?

Another Fantastic

Year for Milnrow

and Newhey

Carnival

Thousands of people lined the streets to

watch Milnrow & Newhey Carnival and

attended the summer fete at Milnrow

Memorial Park on Saturday 22nd June.

A thoroughly enjoyable day was had by all

and the sense of camaraderie and goodwill

in the village was evident as the local

community came out to support the day.

Milnrow Brass Band led the parade which

followed by a host of walking groups and vehicles

ranging from cars, flat bed trailers to 45ft floats.

There were Carnival Queens, super-heroes, fairy

tale characters, street dancers, morris dancers,

cricketers, footballers, local schools, pre-schools

together with voluntary groups, businesses and

charities taking part in the parade donning all

kinds of fancy dress. This year’s ‘At the Movies’

theme was evident throughout the parade as was

a very impressive sight.

Proceeds from the street collection were donated

to Springhill Hospice and Rochdale Heartbeat.

The carnival committee wishes to thank the local

community for the generosity shown in the

contributions to the street collection on the day.

Large crowds attended the Milnrow Memorial

Park and enjoyed the live music provided by New

Identity to the delight of the crowd.

Also, at the park there was a family fun fair, paintball,

crazy golf, toy stalls, craft stalls, face painting,

hair accessories, karate displays, soap stalls,

charity stalls and tombolas. Mrs Barbers Bakery

attended the event offering a selection of delicious

unique cakes along with Sugar Chic Fudge and

Busy Beans Coffee providing afternoon tea and a

wide range of speciality coffee.

The committee would like to thank all who took

part in the parade and attended the park. They are

always amazed by the effort put into the costumes

and float decoration and are immensely grateful

the community’s participation and support of this

well-loved annual event.

The committee would also like to thank Graham

Poole Transport, Minky of Rochdale, M J May

Transport for providing vehicles and drivers for the

event. Thanks, are also offered to Buddies Florist,

The Beauty Spot and The Card House for their

contribution to the Carnival Queens float. We

would also like to thank Milnrow Bowling Club for

re-arranging their fixture list.

Finally, the carnival committee would like to

extend their gratitude to all who watched the

parade and attended the summer fete.

The date for next year’s carnival is

Saturday 20th June and the theme is...

‘Christmas in June - lets go crazy!’.

interested in getting involved, please call

Your Forum Needs You!

By Neil Butterworth, your newly appointed Forum Chair

As the recently appointed Chairman of Pennine’s Business and Tourism Forum, I thought it

best we start by taking stock of what we had to offer and felt that Tourism was a good

starting point. I won’t get it all into this short article, however I hope that any business

people or members of the public who have an interest in developing our local businesses

to increase trade and tourism, please do get in touch (see opposite).

Let’s start with Newhey and Ogden

We have Piethorne Valley Camping (with glamping pods!, available at

http://piethorne-valley-camping.co.uk/), a relatively new site with fantastic options of walks

in the Pennines and visits to the local pubs and cafes, many outdoor activities are available

ranging from angling to hang gliding!

We also have several historical trails in the area focusing on the Co-Op movement and the

old co-ops in the area, as a matter of interest, which one did you frequent? The Red one or

the Blue one?

Moving into Milnrow you can’t beat Milnrow

Memorial Park, another gem in our area and centre

for many activities from Crown Green Bowling to

Basket Ball (the local “Friends of Milnrow Park”

group do a great job in managing this lovely Green

Space). It’s also a highlight of our Pennines in

Bloom entry. Excellent parking facilities make it a

great starting point to walk or run in the Pennines.

Accommodation is available at the John Milne.

I understand that we get quite a few visitors from

Japan who are interested in the story of John Milne

(he invented the seismograph; remember Kobe in

January 1995 and Fukushima in April 2011?

Just over the road is the Ellenroad Engine House and Steam Museum

(Available at https://sites.google.com/a/ellenroad.org.uk/www/home) a local gem and in

steam the first Sunday in every month, usually with a supporting car/tractor rally and an

excellent café serving sandwiches, cakes and liquid refreshments!

We have the Pennine Way on our doorstep which along with several local pubs and

restaurants make it an ideal place to relax and enjoy the great outdoors. Several walking

groups are based in the area and welcome visitors to join them (e.g. Rochdale Ramblers,

available at https://www.rochdaleramblers.org.uk/)

A visit to Milnrow Library is also a fantastic way to spend a few hours and you will receive a

warm welcome and lots of information of what is available in the Pennines (More

information available at http://www.rochdale.gov.uk/library-services/local-libraries/Pages/

milnrow-library.aspx).

We can’t do an article on Tourism without mentioning Hollingworth Lake, a reservoir for the

Rochdale Canal which has proven a great tourist attraction for many people over the years.

It’s management has recently been taken over by Link 4 Life who also manage the many

leisure centres in the Borough. Sailing and water sports are the main activities, but a wildlife

centre and a flat walking surface also prove very popular for young and old alike. I always

have to have an ice cream, it’s the law!

What about future development of business and tourism?

The purpose of the Pennines Business and Tourism Forum (Available at //blanthorn.com/

sites/pennine-business-and-tourism-forum/contact) is to promote and support business

and tourism development within the area, especially tourism.

Unfortunately, meetings are poorly attended and budgets are sparse.

We need enthusiastic people to get involved. We are instigating a free Raffle with cash prizes

to be spent in your local shops, planned to be

launched 100 days before and in support of

Small Business Saturday, on the 7th December.

I welcome any feedback or requests

for help or information to myself, Neil

Butterworth, a proud Lancastrian!, via

any of the methods below, come and

join us, together we can make our area

a great tourist hotspot!

Milnrow Library Walk and Talk Group

A FOUR-MILE WALK FOR THE SUMMER HOLIDAYS

Now that it is summer and the children are on holiday from school, why not

encourage them to take a ramble into the local countryside. This is a

moderate walk with some lengthy inclines; ascents and descents; some

stiles and a motorway bridge.

OSMap OL21 covers the route. Have suitable

walking shoes or boots and clothing to protect

you depending on the weather conditions. If it

is hot, take plenty of water to refresh you, and

sunscreen to protect you. A walking pole and

mobile phone are worth taking.

The Route

The starting point for our Group is Milnrow

Library from where we proceed left, under the

motorway bridge, then left into Milnrow Memorial

Park. The park is also an alternative starting

point, it offers car parking facilities and toilets.

Proceed up the high path, left, which passes

the Grade II listed War Memorial and take the

woodland walk path, past the wild bird feeding

station emerging at the end of the park

perimeter wall. Proceed along the bridleway

that leads to Lower Bradley and St Thomas’

Church. Go down Church Street, then right

down the steps, cross over the A640

Huddersfield Road, go along Railway Street,

over the Piethorne Brook footbridge and onto

Two Bridges Road. Turn left up to Hough Fold,

and proceed along the stone sett paved road

with charming stone cottages (circa 1788)

either side, and Kiln Gardens on the left, into

Hough Square. Continue up the tree lined

Bethany Lane. As the lane bends a panoramic

view of Newhey quarry can be seen. Proceed

past Bethany Farm (fresh eggs for sale at

the gate) and past Barnards Farm Cottages,

emerging again onto A640 Huddersfield Road.

Take care crossing the road at this junction

because of fast moving traffic.

Go down Ogden Lane, observing the Stone

Circle left, on towards Lane Bottom, then left up

the ‘Private Road’ to Ogden Reservoir. Take the

stone steps left and proceed along the reservoir

banking, up the end steps and through a gap

in the wall. Turn right and continue with the

reservoir to your right and the Nature Reserve

to your left, through a wooden gate. There is a

stream to the right, but follow the path left, by

the fence, then left over a stile.

46 To advertise call 07976 289967 or 07974 434793 or email sales@streetwisemag.co.uk


Proceed up the steps, bounded by trees either

side, emerging after a steep climb at another

stile, where a period of rest is recommended.

Continuing up another steep incline, along

the narrow field path, past a sink hole on the

right, emerging at a stile onto a lane. Go left

along this rough stoney bridleway. Observe

panoramic views of Rochdale, and its surrounding

hills, before you, & Crompton Moor

to your left. Follow the waymarker sign, right,

at the junction of Carr Lane, down the bedrock

surfaced bridleway which then becomes paved

with stone setts. Take care in wet conditions as

this bridleway surface can be very slippy. There

are many wildflowers along this stretch of lane;

Foxgloves, Yellow Iris, Buttercup and Ox-eye

Daisy. In contrast is the busy M62 motorway

extending before you.

The lane emerges at Tunshill House and

Ashfield Farm. Cross the M62 road bridge and

proceed down past Tunshill Golf Club.

As the lane bends, follow a waymarker sign

down a single width path and over the golf

course. Be aware of the danger of driven golf

balls and keep to the wall, right, before crossing

the fairway to emerge at a stile, beyond which

the path leads down past Hollingworth

Academy emerging at the Waggon Inn,

Butterworth Hall and Milnrow Library.

OUR GROUP

If you feel you want to get out more

often for a walk in the local countryside,

then come along to our weekly Walk and

Talk Group. Our walks are designed for

people of all abilities and ages, who wish

to gain the health benefits, both physical

and mental, from walking in a safe and

social group. Based at Milnrow Library

we meet every Monday (except Bank

Holidays) from 9.30 am leaving out at

10am. It is free and friendly and led

by volunteer walk leaders. Children are

welcome accompanied by responsible

adults.

From The Archives

As with many towns in the United

Kingdom, Rochdale has a number

of parks in which people can spend

time with little cost. Stanney Brook,

Denehurst and Hare Hill at

Littleborough are amongst them but

here I focus on three large parks in

the borough, Broadfield, Falinge

and Springfield.

BROADFIELD PARK

The 30 acres of land below Rochdale Parish

Church were for many years’ glebe lands

for the use of the parish priest and

‘acceptable gentlemen’ who might wish to

take the air. In the 19th century the area

consisted of three gravel paths bordered

by shrubs and flower beds. However,

pressure mounted in the 18th century,

especially from Liberals on the council, to

purchase the land for a public park. The

church stood firm at £600 an acre and the

Tory party disagreed with the whole idea,

believing that working people had no time

for recreation. However, after the passing of

the Vicarage Bill which gave more power to

local authorities, a sale was agreed in 1868.

THREE ROCHDALE PARKS

The park was landscaped by Stansfield’s of

Todmorden to include a lake and

separate playgrounds for girls and for boys

and on 1st August 1874 Broadfield Park

was opened to the public.

The oldest park in Rochdale, boundary

walls were built in the early 20th century

and the park extensively refurbished over

the years to include a Victorian-style

bandstand, bowling greens (1908) and

further play areas for children. Broadfield

also contains important town monuments,

the statue of John Bright MP and a

monument erected in 1900 to the

memory of Rochdale’s dialect poets. Some

of the stranger aspects of Broadfield Park’s

history include the presence at one time of

a large cannon, supposedly dating from the

Crimean War which was known as Big

Bertha. Before it was taken away to be

used as metal for the war effort in the early

1940’s it stood near to what became the

nurse’s home, now a hotel. Elsewhere in

the park is the large boulder (I was always,

wrongly, told that it was a meteorite) found

at Crown Top in Castleton and presented

to the corporation and at one time near

St Albans Street there was allegedly a

tombstone to a dog which had been owned

by Miss Harriot Drake daughter of a former

vicar at the Parish Church.

FALINGE PARK

An estate of 18 acres between Falinge

Road and Sheriff Street had been owned

by the Royds family since 1799 with Mount

Falinge mansion at its centre built in early

19th century by James Royd who lived in

it until subsequent generations of Royds

took it over.

48

To advertise call 07976 289967 or 07974 434793 or email sales@streetwisemag.co.uk


In the early days the house, which had

been a political centre for liberalism, was

offered for sale in the 1860’s but it was not

until the early 20th century that the entire

estate was sold. Samuel Turner, one of the

brothers who went on to transform TBA

from its beginnings as a cotton mill, had

started negotiations with the Royds family

in the 1890’s to purchase Mount Falinge

estate, including mansion, outbuildings

and grounds. Unoccupied since 1891, the

house was by that time run down and

Turner, the mayor of Rochdale in 1902,

settled on ‘a rather stiff price’ with Albert

Hudson Royds but after securing the sale

he presented it as a park to the town. It

has been estimated that it cost Turner

£20,000 plus a donation of £2500 towards

the £9000 cost of fencing and park lay-out.

The large conservatories and 4 or 5 vine

houses needed repair but a decision was

made to demolish many of the outbuildings,

stables and other buildings instead and

convert part of the mansion for use as a

museum and art gallery.

Following a procession from the Town

Hall, the park was opened to the public

on 5th August 1905 by Samuel Turner

with a golden key ‘for the benefit of the

inhabitants of the borough.’ An old

bandstand which was built, burnt down

and later rebuilt saw bands playing there

for many years, latterly under the auspices

of the Friends of Falinge Park.

Eventually the mansion was demolished,

leaving only the sealed façade that can be

seen to this day, a sad end to a long

Rochdale heritage.

SPRINGFIELD PARK

Springfield Park located between Rochdale

and Heywood is the town’s largest park.

The Borough’s General-Purpose Committee

was authorised in 1914 to acquire from

Mr J Davenport the Springfield Estate

(Springfield House, Springfield Farm and

adjoining buildings) in order to establish

a tuberculosis sanitorium as part of an

anti-consumption crusade, although by

1924 it was in use as a maternity hospital.

Further negotiations and expansion went

on through the 1920’s with the development

of tennis courts, bowling green and a

9-hole putting course. The Mere pastures

and 6 acres from Mereside Farm were

purchased in 1925 enabling schools to use

land for sporting activities. When 44 acres

of Marland Fold Farm became available a

local benefactor, Frederick Lye, stepped

up (literally) to the tee. Lye, a successful

business man had already bequeathed land

for playing fields at Firgrove and Lenny

Barn but was a keen golfer so with the help

of a £2000 loan from the Ministry of Health

bought land which he gave to the borough

in order to build a municipal golf course in

the park which was opened in April 1927.

Springfield Park continues to be popular

with its ‘Fishpond’, its miniature railway,

its running track, playing fields, golf course

and tennis courts, all adding a further

aspect to Rochdale’s rich recreational

environment.

If you have any memories about parks in

Rochdale, I’d be delighted to hear from

you and add them to a growing Rochdale

archive on the subject.

Jenny’s a runaway winner with Revilo!

A Rochdale ‘brave soul’ enjoyed an unforgettable day out… thanks

to one of the town’s most community-minded businesses.

Homes and mortgages specialist Revilo Homes treated mother-of-two Jenny Neaverson

to a special horse-racing themed event hosted at the famed Nutters restaurant.

Revilo Homes teamed up with partner company Revilo Mortgages to sponsor an Ascot

Ladies Day Luncheon at celebrity chef Andrew Nutter’s award-winning restaurant,

offering up their own table on social media for followers to nominate a worthy cause.

“As lead sponsors of the event we wanted to make it an extra special day and decided

to let the community choose who most deserved to be our guests,” said Revilo Group

managing director Lee Collins.

“We had dozens of nominations - all of them very worthy indeed - but Jenny’s name

repeatedly appeared and, having heard her story, it was an easy decision to make. Her

friends describe her as ‘the most genuine, heart-warming person’ who has stayed positive

throughout a difficult personal time. A truly brave soul.

“We are a community firm in the heart of Rochdale and including the people of the town

in everything we do is of paramount importance.”

Jenny, who lives in Rochdale, was diagnosed with cancer 18 months ago. She was

chauffeur-driven to the event, where she enjoyed a three-course lunch and

entertainment with three friends, all in aid of the Rochdale NSPCC.

Gill Davies (Revilo Homes & Mortgages), Julie Wood (Revilo Life), Deborah Brierley (Revilo Capital), Angela Butcher,

Rose Bennett, Andrew Nutter, Vicky Miller, Jenny Neaverson, Amanda Constable & Katie Constable.

Ray of Sunshine award

for volunteering couple

Springhill Hospice received

a very special visit this week

from BBC Northwest.

Two volunteers at the hospice, Carole and Roger

Dawson, were nominated for a Ray of Sunshine

award. Their daughter Hazel was the one who

nominated them for the award. The dedicated

couple were nominated for all the voluntary work

they do, along with the work they do out in

the community.

The Ray of Sunshine award has been created in honour of BBC Northwest presenter, Dianne

Oxberry, who sadly passed away earlier this year. The awards have been presented to those who have

helped others, their community, or just generally lit up the lives of others around them.

Roger is a driver for Springhill’s Day Hospice. He picks up patients and brings them to Day Hospice.

Carole volunteers around the hospice and in Day Hospice alongside being an active fundraiser for

Springhill. They have both been volunteers at the hospice for many years.

Julie Halliwell, Hospice Chief Executive said “It is so lovely that, Roger and Carole’s daughter Hazel

has nominated them for this special award. It’s been quite difficult keeping Hazel’s nomination a

secret. Our volunteers are so special to us, whether they work within the Hospice itself, out in the

gardens, in our retail departments, or in the community in patients own homes. Our Hospice simply

would not survive without our wonderful volunteers”.

Springhill volunteers have recently been granted

the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, the

highest award a voluntary group can receive in

the UK, and will be going to Gorton Monastery in

August to receive their award.

We are LOCAL.

We know PROPERTY.

1. Make a plan. Do your Homework

Are you looking to move soon, or are

you happy to wait to achieve the very

best price? Take a step back, seek

advice on the local market, check local

sold house prices and be realistic.

2. Find the right agent for you

Draw up a shortlist. Visit their offices.

Are they helpful? Will they give your

property the widest possible exposure

including portals such as Rightmove,

Zoopla and OnTheMarket? Do they

know your local area well? Are they

honest with their claims when dealing

with you? Can you contact them easily

out of normal hours?

3. Avoid Overvaluations & Overpromising

No-one has a magic wand or a list of

buyers waiting to buy your home! It’s a

common misconception that you should

simply choose the agent that comes up

with the highest price. It’s the oldest trick

in the book to slap a high price tag on

it to win your business. Calls for price

reductions soon follow.

4. Speak to Revilo

We are a one stop shop for all your

property and home moving needs. Visit

our new offices, we’d be delighted to

meet you, or call to request a FREE no

obligation valuation.

Introducing.... Revilo Mortgages

Are you coming to the end of

your fixed term mortgage?

Are you considering investing in

another property?

Or are you looking to raise funds

using your current property?

Let’s face it, whatever your current circumstances,

the search for the right mortgage product can be

a bit of a minefield. The team at are here to take all

the confusion out of getting a mortgage.
