The work to uncover the River Roch in Rochdale Town Centre is making good progress. The Revealing the Roch project is uncovering two sections of the river, and will expose the historic bridge, parts of which can be traced back to the medieval period.

The bridge and sections of river being exposed (on The Butts in front of the HSBC Bank and on the Esplanade close to Barclays Bank) were covered over in the Victorian period and have been hidden from public view for more than a century.
River Roch
The River Roch (pronounced "roach") is a tributary of the River Irwell. It rises on Chelburn Moor, south of Todmorden, and flows south through Littleborough towards Rochdale where it is joined by the River Beal at Belfield, and the River Spodden from Whitworth. Turning west it runs past Heywood and Bury before meeting the River Irwell just to the east of Radcliffe.
