Sightseeing
Bacup is a town within the Rossendale borough of Lancashire, England. It is located in the South Pennines, along Lancashire's eastern boundary with West Yorkshire. The town sits within a rural setting in the Forest of Rossendale in the steep-sided upper-Irwell Valley, through which the River Irwell passes. It is 3.5mi east of Rawtenstall, 6.4mi north of Rochdale, and 21mi east of Preston. At the time of the United Kingdom Census 2001, Bacup—which encompasses the outlying communities of Britannia, Broadclough, Stacksteads, Rockcliffe, Trough Gate and Weir—had a population of 12,763.Bacup emerged as a settlement following the Anglo-Saxon settlement of Britain in the Early Middle Ages. For centuries, Bacup was a small and obscure centre of domestic flannel and woollen cloth production, and many of the original weavers' cottages survive today as listed buildings. Following the Industrial Revolution Bacup became a mill town, its landscape dominated by distinctive and large rectangular woollen and cotton mills. Bacup received a charter of incorporation in 1882, giving it municipal borough status and its own elected town government, consisting of a mayor, aldermen and councillors to oversee local affairs.
