Big Butts, Rochdale – Aug 2013

Author tch0rt - Last updated: 01.11.2013

I’ve not needed to go to Rochdale until now but as I was in the area I decided to pop in to Big Butts.

Entering downstream and at the side of the police station was a bit sketchy but it was virtually a walk in

:D

The Domesday Book records the name of Rochdale as Recedham, formed from Old English reced "hall", and ham "homestead". The name of the river is a back-formation from this Old English name. With time, the town’s name changed to Rachedale and eventually Rochdale. The name of the river Roch is /ˈroʊtʃ/, with a long o. The name of the town, however, is pronounced /ˈrɒtʃdeɪl/, with a short o.

The river has been culverted in Rochdale town centre since the early 20th century. This was built by the joining together of seven bridges to form one large bridge, making it one of the widest bridges in the world. Maintenance work was carried out on the bridge in the 1990s and the river was uncovered temporarily.

It also gave me the perfect chance to test out the GoClone from 7dayshop

The mini camera doesn’t deal with the dark that well but it wasn’t at all phased by taking a dunk in the Roch

:D
