Healey Dell Nature Reserve & Tea Rooms
Off Whitworth Road
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. The Healey Dell Heritage Centre now offers visitors a unique experience with its recently opened Victorian themed tea rooms with English cream teas served in vintage bone-china. The Centre offers a permanent exhibition featuring a pictorial history of the Dell. There is a Fairy Grotto where children can meet the Healey Dell Fairy Godmother and so much more.
Car parking is available at Broadley Wood Lodge, off Station Road and at the Heritage Centre.
The tea rooms are open Friday, Saturday and Sunday and all Bank Holidays from 10am.
