The Location

Failsworth is a bustling town in the Borough of Oldham, located just 20 minutes’ drive away from the city centre of Manchester and the employment, shopping and leisure opportunities that affords.

Influences of Failsworth’s history as a centre for textile manufacturing still inspire the character of the area and red brick industrial buildings are a common sight across the town. The Cottons is situated on the edge of the Rochdale Canal, which flows through the region and crosses the Pennines to Sowerby Bridge flanked by easy walking and cycling routes through the scenic hills and mountains.
