Healey Dell Nature Reserve

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.

About Healey Dell Nature Reserve

The River Spodden has carved its way through the woodlands through 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.
