Great outdoors


Heywood has a vibrant sense of community and its regular programme of events includes a Christmas light switch on and an annual 1940s Day.

The Heywood Sports Village offers a huge range of activities for energetic types, while visitors who prefer a taste of history can hop aboard a steam train on the East Lancashire railway from its base at the Heywood railway station.

The perfect place to unwind, Heywood Queen’s Park was recently voted the nation’s favourite park, while the first war memorial dedicated to people who died after the Second World War stands proudly in the township.
