About Middleton

Inspiration

  1. Children running towards the camera with Dippy behind them.
    In light of the current situation, along with our colleagues at Link4Life, we’ve taken the difficult decision to suspend Dippy in Rochdale. The health and safety of our residents and visitors must come first and now is the time to take a pause. We will review the possibility of reopening Dippy on Tour in Rochdale in the upcoming months.
