Extract from Sunday Time's article:
“Then the road starts to climb, and the old houses progress from mill workers' to mill owners' to upland farmers'. The moors open up, the narrow, wooded valleys roll away and the gnawing lifestyle envy kicks in. Just such a climb brings you to Hindle Pastures a wonderfully converted barn that backs onto moorland. It is designed with real style and managed with informal, chatty ease by Gillie Marshall”.

The disused railway line and spectacular 100 foot high viaduct afford good views of the Dell and have a level surface for the less agile, with some access for wheelchair users.
Close by Whitworth Square is a designated conservation area. 200 years ago the pioneering Whitworth Taylor Doctors had their practice here. John Taylor was formerly a blacksmith and horse doctor. He lived at Whitworth House, just below the Red Lion public house. The Whitworth Doctors were local bone setters but also treated patients from London and overseas, including the then Archbishop of Canterbury. In more recent times the local Britannia Coco-Nutters have performed there.
