  • Would be worth checking the area out yourself. But www.police.uk would be a useful site to take a look at.

  • Whitworth is a lovely place to live. I lived there for 12years only moved to another area because of ill health. Hardly any crime everyone looks out for each other. Beautiful area lovely scenery everyone friendly. Good local shops. Only downside traffic first thing in the morning takes ages if going towards Rochdale, going opposite direction, no problem. Hope this helps.

  • I would suggest that you look at the local authorities’ website or police.gov to see what the crime statistics etc for this area are. You can also look at the local tourist board website which gives you an up to date overview of the area. I would also visit the area and ask some locals.

  • I have lived on Knowsley crescent for 14 years. It's very quiet but good community spirit. The chapel is the hub and there is loads go on there from toddler groups to cinema nights and car boot sales. Neighbours watch each other kids and there is a new kids park in center. Morrisons is opening a new store soon in Bacup and this helps the half hour trip to the nearest supermarket! The cycle path runs past my house and it's brilliant for dog walking, running etc.. I love it here with hills for walking etc. and like the quiet. The leisure center is £20/month at present and has a big pool with lessons and gym, otherwise it's limited although there is a small football club and rugby pitch further down road. I would recommend this area if you like the quiet life and stress free living.
