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.

Unsettled mid October week ahead!

Reigate Grammar School Weather Station

A little unsettled throughout this week October 15 onwards, but not so bad except mid-week.  Models look unsettled and wet for our region Wednesday: heavy rain on the cards again!  Low pressure dominates throughout the week but some warmer air flows from the south on occasions keep day time temperatures up reasonably.  A more significant dip in temperature is looking likely in the next week.

Here’s an update for London temperature forecasts through to the end of October according to the GFS.  Note the significant dip to cooler temperatures around mid week on 25 October… no real surprise as we enter autumn proper but it’s interesting to note when these inevitable falls kick-in.

Forecasts remain uncertain because Raphael, a decaying Atlantic Hurricane, is sitting off our shores.
