Memorable Canal Visits: The South Pennines – An Advance Notice

For many years Ian Moss has been organising and leading his “Memorable Canals Visits”. NW Group are hoping to continue this tradition under the auspices of the RCHS .

Our first venture will be to visit sites on the Rochdale and Huddersfield Narrow Canals. The tour will be by coach. There will be a commentary on both canal and railway sites along the way and  also opportunities to spend time at six sites of particular interest. The six selected are at: Sowerby Bridge, Hebden Bridge, Salterhebble, Marsden, Diggle and Stalybridge.

We are currently working on the details of the itinerary (with our friends in NE Group) and further details will be included in the next Bulletin and will also be posted on the society’s website. Plans are that the coach can be boarded at Stockport Railway Station at 10:00am or, alternatively, at Rochdale Railway Station at 10:50am (approx). Drop offs for return journeys home will be at Stalybridge and Stockport.

At this point we are looking for expressions of interest. This will help us to determine the size of coach that will be required. For further information, please contact Roger Brice (tel: 01625 533959; 07702 303242 0r by email: rogerbrice@microton.net.
