STREETWISE MAGAZINE

Welcome to

our March issue

We are so glad to be back after

a brief pause in production due

to lockdown restrictions.

It goes without saying that it’s been a tough

year for us all, but the beginning of the end

may be in sight as we all look forward to the

return of some kind of normality in the next

few weeks.

Many of the businesses in our four

magazines will have been affected in some

way by the pandemic and we wish them all a

speedy recovery.

Where there’s a will, there’s a way and even

during bleak times the community spirit is

still very much alive! In our community pages

there’s another great walk from Milnrow Walk

and Talk group. If there’s something we have

all benefitted from during lockdown, it’s long

walks in the great outdoors and appreciation

of the wonderful surroundings in which we

live. The ‘Protect our Greenbelt Group’ have

written an important update on the Greater

Manchester Spacial Framework as they

continue their vital work against proposed

sites in various parts of Rochdale.

Until next month...

Milnrow Library Walking Group

Milnrow Memorial Park to Tandle Hill Countryside Park

This months walk is a long one, 10 miles

there and back, and somewhat demanding.

Good walking shoes or boots are required,

some paths will be muddy in wet weather

and there are some long gradual inclines.

OS sheet 81/91 or A to Z Milnrow/Royton

covers the walk area.

THE ROUTE

Leaving our base in Milnrow Memorial Park, exit the

main gates, cross over Newhey Road, turn right and

proceed under the motorway bridge, then first left into

Schofield Street. Go through the Garden House gate

posts onto Ladyhouse Close. Then second right onto

Ladyhouse Lane. Turn left go over the metro bridge

and under the Elizabethan Way subway.

Follow the blue direction sign for Kingsway Business

Park (Route 92) taking the left footpath to the

continuation of Ladyhouse Lane. At the junction

facing the old stone cottages, bear left and go up

Ashfield Lane. It is a steady incline up the tree lined

lane, with the M62 motorway over to the left, and then

descend down to its end with a wild life lake over to

the right.

Follow right, the Broad Lane direction sign, then sharp

left along a signposted bridleway. The gravel path

passes the 17th century Broad Shaw farmhouse on

the right and runs parallel with the M62 motorway left,

and past the Asda depot on the right. It is a pleasant

environmentally landscaped pathway with a wide

variety of trees, emerging onto Chadwick Lane and

at its junction with Broad Lane.Turn left and proceed

up Broad Lane, past the The Fairview Inn, cross over

and continue up to the Shaw and Crompton boundary,

signed Rochdale Road Burnedge. After the end

cottage, No 705, turn right, signposted Pit Lane.

Proceed along this single width path until it widens,

past the caravan storage depot, onto its junction with

Shaw Road. Turn right past Gravelhole Methodist,

cross over the road then proceed left down Thornham

Lane, passing St James Church on the right.

However continue straight ahead through an access

opening then turn left under the subway with the

culverted Stanney Brook on the left. Continue up

the Bridleway then go left through another access

opening signposted Broad Lane (route 92).

Here the busy M62 traffic passes on the left, on the

right is a large depot well shielded by foliage, trees and

shrubs. Continue along the bridleway through a gate

with access opening and emerge onto Dig Gate Lane.

Go directly across the main road, be aware of heavy,

fast moving traffic. Proceed along the lane (now

designated Thornham New road within the Oldham

Borough boundary). Just before the brow of the

ascending lane there is a double steel field gate on the

left, with access opening onto a hedgerow lined path

that leads straight to Tandle Hill Countryside Park.

34

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


To return, leave the viewpoint in a westerly direction

heading down a field path, through a stile then a

hinged gate, through the yard of Tandle Hill Farm and

back onto Thornham Lane at Tandle Hill tavern.

The Park consists of 110 acres of woodland and

grassland, picnic areas, play areas and numerous

trails and paths. On its highest point stands a War

Memorial, to the men of Royton who gave their lives

in both World Wars. This vantage point is 222 metres

above sea level (750 ft asl) and offers a panoramic

view of miles around.

Continue right, along the lane retracing the route back

via Pit Lane, Broad Lane, Chadwick Lane, .Ashfield

Lane and Ladyhouse Lane, to Milnrow Memorial Park.

Geoff Ogden (Walk Leader)

To the South is Jodrell Bank (26 miles away). To the

West is Winter Hill (12 1/2 miles), Holcomb Tower

(7 3/4 miles away), and Knowl Hill can be seen.

SAVE OUR VILLAGES

(NEWHEY & MILNROW) PROTECT OUR GREENBELT GROUP

Our Group was set up in 2016 in

response to the first draft Greater

Manchester Spacial Framework

Plan for proposed building in and

around Newhey & Milnrow. This

land is the lungs of the community

and once it has gone it has gone

forever!

Since our last article in the December/

January issue a lot has changed with the

Greater Manchester Spacial Framework.

In that issue our Group highlighted that

the public needed to watch out for the

publication of the final GMSF Plan at the

end of December. This has not happened

because Stockport Council withdrew from

the GMSF.

The Greater Manchester Combined

Authority announced on 5th February

2021 that a joint development strategy for

the city region has been drawn up named

‘Places for Everyone’.

36

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


The plan will build on the evidence base

already collected in the GMSF to minimise

the time and cost in developing a new

document. The 9 remaining authorities will

consider the report on 12th February on

whether to form a committee to develop

the long-term plan. At the moment there

is no information on when this proposed

‘Places for Everyone’ joint plan will go out

for consultation so, once again, please

keep a look out for it because this will be

From The Archives

CANON FRANCIS ROBERT RAINES

Apart from his grave in Milnrow

St James’ Church graveyard and

a local road that bears his name,

little remains of one of the most

important men from the Rochdale

area in the 19th century.

Francis Raines was born into a

professional family in Whitby on 22nd

February 1805. He was the third son of

a Hull physician, Isaac Raines MD and

Ann, daughter of Joseph Robertson the

vicar of Aislaby. His early education

was at Burton Pudsea, intending that

Francis follow his father into medicine.

At the age of 13 in 1818 after his older

brother, on grounds of ill health, left his

apprenticeship with William Coultate a

surgeon in Clitheroe, Francis was sent

to take his place. At the time, his father

described his son as ‘a fine stout lad’

and although his apprenticeship was

supposed to last for 7 years the boy tired

of the medical professional and, after

undertaking study periods at Clitheroe

and Burnley Grammar schools, left

medicine to take up a place at St Bees

Theological College in what was then

Cumberland.

His first ordination at the age of 23, was

a short appointment as assistant curate

at Saddleworth and then Rochdale

where he took a curacy at the Parish

(see Streetwise June 2017) vicar of

Rochdale, the Reverend W R Hay. In

1832 he was appointed – again by

Hay on the death of Reverend Joseph

Hodgson - as perpetual curate of St

James Milnrow where he stayed for

the rest of his life. At his ministry

in Milnrow he threw himself into

rebuilding the church and setting up

a school, spending something like

£30,000 in the process.

Personal honours came his way during

his time at Milnrow. He was appointed

as domestic chaplain to the Earl of

Dunmore in 1841 and an MA was

bestowed upon him by the Archbishop

of Canterbury in 1845. He was rural

dean of Rochdale from 1846 to 1877

and an honorary canon of Manchester

Cathedral from 1849. In 1845 was made

Justice of the Peace for the county.

In Milnrow in 1836 Francis Raines

married Honora Elizabeth Beswicke the

eldest daughter of Major John Beswicke

of Pike House Littleborough. They had

three children, Susan Ann Robertson

who died in infancy, Honora Bella who

married George Twycross of Horstead

House, near Brighton and Florence

Addison.

It is however, as an antiquarian that he

is best remembered outside Milnrow.

Church offered to him by the infamous Interested in history and the records

of local villages and towns, Raines,

even as a young man in Saddleworth,

worked with James Butterworth in

compiling the history of the local

church there and continued to gather

biographies and family histories as well

as records of villages around Rochdale

for many years afterwards. This was

well recognised across the region and

by 1843 he was not only elected to the

Society of Antiquarians but took his

place as one of the founder members

of the Chetham Society in Manchester

where he was elected Vice President

in 1858, succeeding Canon Parkinson.

His careful and well-ordered records

were the fruits of years of painstaking

research and constitute the basis of the

17 volumes of the Society’s ‘Remains

Historical and Literary connected with

the Palatine Counties of Lancaster

and Chester,’ the edited 23 volumes of

the Chethams Society series as well

as 44 volumes of manuscripts – ‘The

Lancashire Manuscripts’ - which form

the basis of the Raines Collection at

Chethams library. He is regarded as

the main historical link to the history of

Rochdale and its neighbouring towns.

Part of his work was to transcribe,

in impeccable handwriting, the early

documents that had been left to

deteriorate over many years concerning

Milnrow Church.

On October 17th 1878, at the age of

73 and after a short illness, Francis

Raines died in Scarborough. His body

was taken to Milnrow and buried in the

churchyard there where a memorial was

erected ‘by his sorrowing parishioners

and friends.’ He had been the minister

at St James Church for 46 years, a

loss not only to the village of Milnrow

but also to the world of history and

antiquarian studies. Inscribed on his

monument is written: ‘This is a man

who made a difference and shared what

he had of himself with others.’

If you have any comments about Canon Francis Raines, I’d be delighted to

hear from you and add them to a growing Rochdale archive on the subject.

CARNIVAL

Sadly the decision has been made to

cancel this year’s Carnival due to the

current government guidelines and the

overall risk to the community.

However we’re still working away in the background

doing everything we can to ensure that as soon as

the situation allows, we can bring the community

back together and celebrate.

We’re very sorry to announce this sad news for

the second year but keep an eye on our Facebook

page for any updates. Rest assured that as soon

as new guidelines are announced, we will publish

our future plans with the aim of bringing the local

community together again.

Fresh Thinking

CATHY CARTWRIGHT

SOLUTION FOCUSED HYPNOTHERAPY

For every

problem

there is

a solution

Local therapist receives

further recognition

for her services

Rochdale-based

Cathy Cartwright,

owner of

Fresh Thinking

Hypnotherapy, has

just added the title of

Best Hypnotherapy

Service 2020, Greater

Manchester gained

in the Northern

Enterprise Awards, to an impressive collection

of awards and industry accreditations which

firmly place her at the top of her profession.

Whilst such recognition gives potential

customers an insight into Cathy’s abilities and

expertise, it is perhaps her breadth and depth

of experience that reinforces her credibility;

plus glowing customer testimonials!

Cathy’s background spans primary,

secondary, further education and Social

Services which means she has seen firsthand

the traumatic impact that conditions

such as stress, anxiety and depression can

have on adults and children alike.

Since setting up in practice, Cathy has helped

hundreds of people who have suffered from

a range of mental health difficulties including;

anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsive

disorder, fears and phobias, insomnia, worry,

stress, unwanted habits, low confidence and

self-esteem, in addition to those who wanted

to stop smoking or manage their weight.

Cathy currently offers online and telephone

consultations when she is unable to provide

her usual in-person services.

It is all in the mind

The mind is a powerful muscle and controls

not only our thoughts but also our actions and

feelings. By addressing our sub-conscious

mind, we can replace negative thoughts with

positive ones; eliminate thoughts that are

not serving us well and rewire our view of the

world and the future.

During hypnotherapy clients enter a light

trance, which allows the therapist to talk

directly to the person’s subconscious mind.

This is nothing to be worried about. The client

is in full control at all times and is akin to

when you drive somewhere and then can’t

recall the journey!

Cathy specialises in solution-based

hypnotherapy which works with clients to

focus on the positive aspects of their future

rather than dwelling on past issues that may

have triggered their negative emotions and

brought them to the point of needing help.

The strapline to her Fresh Thinking

Hypnotherapy business is “For every

problem there is a solution.” It is what Cathy

passionately believes and it is the premise

on which she has built her multiple-awardwinning

hypnotherapy business.

To see what Cathy can do for you,

call 07716 145 122 or visit

www.freshthinkinghypnotherapy.co.uk.
