Plans to uncover hidden part of River Roch in Rochdale

RPlans to uncover hidden part of River Roch in Rochdaleochdale Council is bidding for £800,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund to uncover part of the River Roch in the town centre.

The scheme would see three sections of the river uncovered revealing a 14th Century medieval bridge.

Peter Rowlinson, from the council, said: “The public spaces in the town centre all relate to the river which has been lost as a feature, so it reconnects with the origins of the town centre.”

The Environment Agency said removing the culvert would also reduce the risk of flooding.
