Revealing The Roch


The reopening and revealing of the river Roch in 2016 was central to restoring the former glory of Rochdale’s town centre. The work revealed a stunning medieval bridge and created a charming backdrop for locals and visitors.

Heritage & Environment


As well as giving visitors a glimpse of Rochdale’s glorious past, the project reduces the flood risk in the town centre. The opening has also helped to re-naturalise the river and attract new wildlife into the area. Brown trout, K ingfisher and Pied Wagtail s have all been spotted.
