Healey Dell is a beauty spot and wildlife sanctuary rich in industrial archaeology, two miles from Rochdale town centre on the way to Whitworth and Bacup. The River Spodden has carved its way through the woodlands down thousands of years, creating delightful 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.
Take the trails to see some spectacular sights.[slideshowck id=258]
