Walking in Rossendale is a fantastic way to explore the area. The Rossendale Way is a circular route around Rossendale that passes through the towns of Stubbins, Whitworth, Haslingden and more.
The Valley is home to reservoirs and landmarks such as Musbury Tor, Hailstorm Hill and the Halo.
Set against the backdrop of the South Pennine hills, the Healey Dell Nature reserve, is a place to admire waterfalls and wildlife.
You can also follow routes that take you by a disused 1800s railway line, which is now a nature trail with magnificent views from a 100ft high viaduct.
There are many high quality food and drink establishments along the way, and they are often locally owned.
