Healey Dell is a wildlife sanctuary close to Rochdale town centre. The River Spodden winds through the woodland, creating a wonderful setting and spectacular waterfalls.

As you walk through the Dell you will notice the 100 foot high viaduct where the old railway line connected the old corn and cotton mills.

In the heritage centre you will find an exhibition of the industrial history of the area and Victorian themed tea rooms. These are open with families in mind, but do serve their cream teas on bone china (just a heads-up!).

It is free to explore Healey Dell, and in addition to the heritage centre there are toilets (including disabled too) and onsite parking.

Q Is this signposted?

Yes, you will see Healey Dell signposted from A671 Rochdale-Bacup Road and from B6377 opposite Healey Hotel. Car Parking at Broadley Wood Lodge, off Station Road and at the Ranger Office, Healey Hall Mills, Dell Road, Shawclough, Rochdale.
