Hollingworth  Lancashire


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Hollingworth like this:

HOLLINGWORTH, a place on the E border of Lancashire; near the Manchester and Leeds railway, and under Blackstone-Edge, 3 miles NE of Rochdale. A large reservoir is here, on which a small steamer plies, and where pleasure-boats are lent on hire.

The location is that named as "Hollingworth" on the Ordnance Survey First Series map. Additional information about this locality is available for Littleborough
