Healey Dell Nature Reserve, Rochdale


It is a nice walk in the woods, and you can hear the watercourse.
People can walk through the viaduct, there is a wonderful view from there both directions.

You can read some very interesting story during your walk. I honestly don’t know anything about cloth manufacturing.

“In order to make it wearable, it was finished through a process called ‘fulling’.”

Their solution was a little bit shocking to me, I am sorry about that. But who knows, maybe somewhere in the world this type of mixture (water, stale urine, soapwort and earth) can be used nowadays too… 🙂

It is a good example of how much fun it is and that you can learn some incredible things about our ancestors during your trip in the woods.


We visited Healey Dell Nature Reserve in September 2021.
