  • Nice valley museum holstering some quaint displays with a nice bar at which to chill. The open mic night is a blast! If visiting the valley, definitely check it out.
  • An excellent meal! Very nice ambience, attentive and friendly staff and very well prepared and presented fresh food. A credit to Rawtenstall will definitely come again..

  • Of intense local interest - but could do with more info on spinning & weaving
  • Interesting visit. A good variety of pieces within the museum. The restaurant there was also very nice.
