NEWS and NOTICES
Looking at Old Buildings
Will visit Rochdale July 27th. The coach will leave the Cricket Club car park at 9am. I have booked a guided tour at 10.30am (about 1 hour) of the very impressive Victorian Gothic Town Hall. At 2pm there will be a visit to the Rochdale Pioneers Museum for a talk and look round including a hot drink. It is a short walk between the 2 venues with an opportunity to see the new Gracie Fields statue and newly uncovered medieval bridge. And time for lunch! Cost £22 including coach, both tours, driver's tip and LaOB 50p. Home approx 5.30pm.
