Big Butts, Rochdale

October 2012 - Explored with Kenni and ViralEye

The River Roch has been culverted in Rochdale town centre since the early 20th century. This was built by the joining together of seven bridges (including a 14th century medieval bridge) to form one large bridge in stages between 1905 and 1928, making it one of the widest bridges in the world.

A planning application has been submitted to Rochdale council to uncover three sections of the river and conservation of the medieval bridge.
