visit rossendale logoThe Routes Around Rossendale project aims to provide a series of way marked circular loop paths to explore the Rossendale Valley from Waterfoot to Shawforth. The loop paths are designed for beginner to intermediate walkers and range from urban roads to the country tracks of the Pennine Bridleway and Mary Towneley Loop.

All loop paths start and end at a main car park and always bring you back to the main arterial road that cuts through the heart of the valley.

The project, funded by Natural England’s Paths For Communities scheme and by Lancashire Environmental Fund, has also ensured a new 1km section of off road multi user path running from Blackwood Rd to Rakehead Rd has been implemented – providing yet another piece of the ambitious Valley of Stone Greenway (off road multi user routes from Rochdale to Rawtenstall). This new route forms part of Loop 5.

For details of all the routes and a guide to using the Loop Paths, please visit the ‘Visit Rossendale’ website
