History of Rochdale

History of Rochdale

The name of the district comes from its position on the actual River Roch but in fact is recorded as Recedham in the Domesday Book. The name Rochdale was thought to be derived from Old English reced meaning "hall", and ham, a "homestead".

Rochdale became one of the world's most productive cotton spinning towns when rose to prominence during the 19th century as a major mill town and centre for textile manufacture during the Industrial Revolution. It was a boomtown of the Industrial Revolution, and amongst the first ever industrialised towns.

The Rochdale Equitable Pioneers Society was founded in 1844 by 28 local residents as a response to the high cost and frequent adulteration of basic foodstuffs by shopkeepers at the time.

More History...

In the period between 1750 and the opening of the shop on Toad Lane, three major forces were instrumental in bringing about change in Rochdale and across the country. These forces were the Industrial Revolution, the church, and the campaign for universal sufferage, the right, it must be added, for every male to vote in parliamentary elections.
As Shakespeare wrote in Julius Caeser, "There is a tide in the affairs of men which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune" and for Lancashire that flood was the Industrial Revolution and for some it was a time of great fortune. Rochdale was forever changed by this tide, but that isn't where its history began.

What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Rochdale

Yes I have been watching Rochdale develop over the past few years and really is one borough oozing with potential. Did you know that quite a few well known people come from this district such as Dame Gracie Fields CBE, a world-famous actress, singer and comedian, was born and brought up in Rochdale. A statue of her has been put up in the town hall square and there is a heritage trail of places associated with her around the town . Another celebrity is Keri-Anne Payne the Great Britian Olympic silver medallist , Paul Scholes the England football player and the list goes on.

What is Rochdale famous for?

Well firstly Rochdale  is probably best knownfor its Co-op, the beginning of the co-operative movement, which today still includes the well known national supermarket chain. Rochdale is also well known for its textile industries including cotton.

Its magnificent Town Hall built in 1871 takes pride of place in the centre of Rochdale, its original clock tower destroyed by fire in 1883 and rebuilt in 1887 is also home to a majestic stained glass window, that was supposed to be one of Adolf Hitler's priority acquisitions should he have won the war.

Things to do in Rochdale...

There are many things to do in this district with family and friend or by yoursef ranging from enjoying scenic views at Hollingworth Lake or enjoying the other nature / wildlife area at the Healey Dell Nature Reserve. Or maybe you could visit the Touchstones or Greater Manchester Fire service museum.

The town itself has many shops, with a daily market and boasts two shopping centres - The Rochdale Exchange with many well known stores.
