Living in Rossendale

Discover a quality of work-life balance in the South Pennines

One of the striking things about living in the charming Rossendale Valley is the invaluable work-life balance that can be offered. It is the perfect location to take in a natural country scene and enjoy the ambience in the coffee shops, markets and microbreweries in the friendly town centres.

You can head for a stroll straight after work, cycle along the trails or horse ride along bridleways which overlook the dramatic landscapes. Embrace the adrenaline attractions at the Water-ski Academy, Grip & Go and the Ski & Snowboard Centre or simply hop on the heritage railway with a pleasant steam train experience through the countryside, stopping at the picturesque village of Irwell Vale.

Supporting and investing in staff has never been more important and none more so than in the visitor economy sector - does your business qualify for FREE leadership and management training with Myerscough College? >> https://www.marketinglancashire.com/news/spotlight/myerscough-college-leading-lancashire/

As a team we have enjoyed working recently with webuybooks. Great to see a local business expanding and creating jobs. https://www.lancs.live/news/lancashire-news/key-rossendale-employer-unveils-relocation-19846493

Another great bunch of businesses attended our recent @InvestInRoss Business Guidance Seminar. We learnt what current funding and support is available as well as lots of info on SMART testing by the @RossendaleBC Environmental Health Team. Thanks all
