If its raining and you need to get a bit of shelter good spot to stop if not avoid as dry biscuits doesn't' quite cover it. Kids may be tricked into thinking its a day trip and it is free and local to Rawtenstall.

Great costing the toll house and visitor centre st Weavers Triangle. The volunteers (sadly the council have yet another gem that isn't funded) are very friendly, knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions. Layout is great - very interesting to see the difference between downstairs accommodation and upstairs - a stark contrast to quality of living. Gift shop is well... More

Went with my family to this maze yesterday and from the outside we just thought it was two rooms, turns out it's got rooms upstairs as well, some have 'dress up stuff' in - sadly didn't fit me! The staff are very helpful and full of knowledge! (the one's we met actually turned out to be retired teachers) The place... More

Lovely man told us a lot of history of the area. The visitors centre is brilliant. Several rooms fitted out in character, including a school room, dining room and model fairground. A walk into the basement takes you onto the toll path. Another chap told us the history there. Some short films available to view..which I recommend. Upstairs is the... More

Enjoyable small museum, with excellent period photos, recreated living and working rooms, fascinating short historical films and a fun heritage fair. Take a look in the insect cabin: amazing!

A quick stop here en route to an hotel stay. The volunteer staff are very enthusiastic about the venue,but sadly couldn't really answer a major query I had about 'dumb barges' I quickly solved it by asking Mr Google! Very limited access,due to the old buildings,no admission charge .

This Visitor Centre, run by a Trust and volunteers, has very limited opening hours, (4 days a week in the Summer, weekends in October and then closed over Winter, to open again at Easter, just 2 hours a day, 2pm - 4pm). We managed to visit it whilst open. It is over 3 floors in a quaint old Victorian house... More

An interesting way to pass an hour or so. Some interesting information and eager-to-please volunteers who run it. There was a miniature fairground in one room which was cleverly constructed, complete with information on holidays in the past. The messages on the old postcards were sweet! The pub next door served reasonable food, just wish the staff would smile with... More
