Overview

'The 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.'

'One of the newest and most unusual attractions is the Halo, an eighteen metre diameter steel structure at Top o'Slate above Haslingden. The unique structure is silver in colour during the day, but at night is illuminated by blue, wind-powered LED lighting. It was completed in 2007 and was the fourth and final of a series of Panopticons (structures with a view) across Lancashire commissioned by Mid Pennine Arts.'
