River Roch Uncovering

RIVER ROCH UNCOVERING

For over a century the River Roch in the centre of Rochdale was hidden, running through a culvert in the heart of the town centre, and the idea of opening up the river was talked about for decades.

Work began in March 2015  and was completed in June 2016. An official 'Revealing the Roch' party took place on 25 June 2016 with the ribbon cut by the Mayor and Mayoress, and one of Rochdale’s oldest residents, 101-year-old Alice Nicholson.
