20 July 2017 – Trip to Rochdale
We made our way by train and tram and met up in Rochdale town centre. The trip included a meal at The Baum – really excellent food – and a visit to the Rochdale Pioneers Museum and the Touchstones Art Gallery and Museum.
At the Rochdale Pioneers Museum, a short walk from The Baum, we enjoyed films narrated by Mr Cholmondley-Warner. We also enjoyed some short films about Gracie Fields in the Touchstones.
The day was finished off with a refreshing drink in the cafe at the Touchstones, although we didn’t approve of the misplaced apostrophe in the sign about “Tip’s”.
