Photos from ⁠⁠⁠Roddlesworth Woods Darwen

One of Darwen’s finest runners was out on the moors last year and decided to send in some photo shots of Roddlesworth Woods Darwen. Mick Leigh, also from Darwen, Lancashire was kind enough to share his photos with us.

We never get tired of this post so we decided to add a few more recent images and reshare it with you.

Roddlesworth Woods Darwen

Roddlesworth Woods Darwen is probably the less visited of the two woods in our area, Sunnyhurst woods being the more popular. There are some great paths to run and walk along and spectacular views in Roddlesworth Woods, especially at this time of year.  The main pathway from the reservoir up to the outer path has just been totally resurfaced as is a much improvement on the old pathway.

This is especially good news for all the runners as there is no more running through the boggy pathway and your feet are dry at the other side. United Utilities have also put down some new grass that assists in the drainage of the land. The grass is “sprayed” on apparently and when it is done at first is very blue in colour. After a few weeks, the grass takes to the land and the colour becomes a more natural grass green colour.

The main entrances to the woods are on Tockholes road but there are other entrances available from the Abbey Village side.

Also hidden deep in the heart Roddlesworth Woods are the ruins of an ancient manor house in the old township of Tockholes that was largely rebuilt by John Hollinshead in the late 1770s.

In Victorian times, Hollinshead Hall and its estate was sold to the Darwen Mill owner Eccles Shorrock until it was finally demolished in 1910 by Liverpool Corporation, which had linked its Rivington and Anglezarke Reservoirs with the smaller Roddlesworth Reservoirs via the waterway known as the Goit.
