Rossendale is an area to be found in the North West of England in the County of Lancahsire. Rossendale is a borough consisitng of around 70,000 people resident in a number of small towns, the major towns being Bacup, Haslingden, Rawtenstall and Whitworth. Records show that the area has been known as Rossendale for over 1000 years however the Borough has only existed since 1974. The River Irwell runs through Rossendale, its source is to be found above Bacup, along the valley and on towards Manchester, the highest point in Rossendale is Top of Leach – around 1500 feet above sea level on the Mary Towneley Loop – a circular loop on the Pennine Bridleway National Trail. Due to the climatic nature of the area the area a cottage woollen industry soon grew up in the area. By the time of the Industrial Revolution these cottage industries were developing into boom towns and by the mid 19th century cotton was the main industry in the area. Around this time footwear manufacture was becoming established in the area and today it is still an important local employer. For resident and tourist Rossendale has plenty to offer from farmers markets to high quality restaurants with local produce, through to specialist shops with designer fashion. There is the Lancashire Textile Museum at Helmshore, or for the more energetic there is the Pennine Bridleway or the Rossendale Way.
