- Rochdale is situated about
12 miles north of the Centre of Manchester and is on the edge
of the picturesque Pennine Hills. It was the birth place of the
Co-operative Movement in 1844 and was known world wide as a town
for weaving cotton.
- Rochdale today has much to attract
both visitors and people living in the area: History, Commerce,
Industry, The Hills and Countryside and Tourism.
This site is intended to give the new viewer an idea of Rochdale
and to bring back memories to "ex-pats". Since my site
was put on the internet I have received many comments and emails
from ex-pats all over the world. This has given me much pleasure
and encouragement. Please keep them coming.
As an enthusiastic photographer living in Rochdale I am always
interested to hear from "ex-pats" as to what photographs
and text they would like to see on these pages.
