Haslingden, Lancashire

There's lots to see and do in Lancashire. A hot air balloon flight may be perfect for a birthday gift or special celebration.

Haslingden is a small but busy market town on a hill in the Rossendale Valley. It was involved with silk and the mechanisation of wool and cotton spinning and weaving during the Industrial Revolution. There is still a ‘Big Lamp’ from which (in the past) all measurements in the town began. Haslingden’s quarries have provided stone paving for many famous places including Trafalgar Square in London. Many 18th/19th century buildings such as the Manchester Road Methodist Church have interesting internal features. Haslingden is the home of the famous ‘Holland’s Pies’, which are still made from the original recipe.

Local places of interest include “The Snighole”. A favourite walkers’ venue is the The Grane Valley to the west of Haslingden and north-east of the West Pennine Moors. This includes scenic walks and the Calf Hey, Ogden and Holden Wood Reservoirs (information centre at Clough Head). To the west of Haslingden is the Helmshore Mills Textile Museum where the processes used in the production of textiles are demonstrated and some of the machines that were used are displayed. A mill shop has books about textiles and associated gifts for sale.
