The best of both worlds.

Life in Littleborough offers you all the benefits of rural living, without missing out completely on city life either. At Stubley Meadows you’re a stone’s throw from two railway stations offering half-hour journeys into Manchester city centre, perfect for working and socialising alike, and only a few minutes away from Rochdale town centre with its new multi-million pound shopping and leisure complex.

Littleborough is also one of the historic Pennine villages, so residents of Stubley Meadows have easy access to the fresh air and walks of the South Pennines, and are pretty much equidistant from the very best urban and rural experiences available in the area.

Of course, you don’t only have to leave Littleborough enjoy something very special. The town boasts boutique shops and market stalls selling local produce, along with independent local pubs, cosy bars and restaurants too. It has an amazing monthly farmer’s market too.

History and community.

Situated on the Rochdale canal, Littleborough isn’t short of historical intrigue and local heritage. As a former mill town, it housed the workforce of the mills of the 1800s on the banks of the nearby River Roch (Hence the name: Rochdale).

The Rochdale Canal was a crucial thoroughfare for goods produced in mills during the industrial revolution, such as the textiles made by the workers of Rochdale. Nowadays it provides a peaceful and picturesque walkway running all the way from the Pennines to Manchester city centre.

Green space, green building.

We use sustainable materials to build them, such as non-toxic, durable timber. This also offers great energy-efficiency benefits in our homes, as good for the wallet as it is for the planet.
