Whitworth Site Details                                                        

Nicknamed: "Purgatory" as it's a barren, blasted landscape you could be forgiven for thinking stood before the gates of Hell.

Description of Site: Large Quarry Site. Challenging terrain, potentially very damaging. Lots and lots of rocks / boulders!!.


Grid Ref:  SD 874 199

Lat / Long:   53'40.24 N    2'10.52 W

Nearest Postcode For Satnav:   OL12 8XG   (Nearest, Just short of site. Stay on main road.)




Leave M62 at Milnrow, Junction 21 and follow A640 Northbound to Rochdale

Take A671 out of Rochdale until you get to Whitworth village

Turn left onto Tong Lane. (Care - road is quite narrow from here on in. Nearly there though!). If you get there early, stay on the main road till 9.00am as the site owners have a noise agreement with the resident on Tong Lane and we don't want to lose the site because of residents complaints.

Proceed straight onwards onto Tong End and then Back Cowm Lane

Fork Right onto Barn lane and follow onto High Barn Lane. If your using the Satnav postcode , STOP NOW or it'll take you up the unmade track to the farm. Keep left and the entrance is large steel gates on right leading into the quarry. (There's usually toilets and a butty van in the parking area if you've left home in a rush!). Also watch out for low flying dirt bikes. They have the site as well!
