Area Overview

Whitworth is a thriving town, population approximately 7,500, which is situated in the Rossendale Valley in Lancashire, in the North West of England. Whitworth is nestled in the foothills of the Pennines, between the towns of Bacup to the north and Rochdale to the south. Whitworth sits right on the tip of the Lancashire boundary, bordering Greater Manchester to the south (Rochdale), with West Yorkshire just over the easterly hills in Todmorden. The township of Whitworth embraces the entire length of the Whitworth Valley, covering an area of around seven square miles. It is a long, thin village, consisting of the communities of Healey, Whitworth, Facit and Shawforth, all of which are linked by the A671, part of the great turnpike road built in the 18th century to link Manchester to Skipton. The pub is located on the corner of Tonge Lane End & Cockhall Lane.
