Just a few meters up from Lock 48 on the canal in Littleborough. a short walk through the picturesque Ealees Valley leads you out on to the Hollingworth Lake visitors center.

Walking and Hiking

In the vicinity, there are a number of countryside walks right on the doorstep. Often at weekend’s you will most likely see quite a few people walking along the canalside and also up and down Ealees road who are visiting the area.


During the summer months, there are many canal boats passing up and down the canal. These usually moor for the evening on the canal just a little down from the house. (there are no mooring points directly opposite the house as it is too near the bridge)


Just a 5-minute walk ( if that ) down the canal towpath approx 300 meters according to google earth, you will be at the train station. Trains head East to Leeds and West to Manchester. The Manchester train takes around 20 minutes. Eastbound you can drop off at other local villages. The first being Todmorden and a little further on Hebden Bridge.

South Facing

The rear of the property is south facing so gets the best of the sunlight for the majority of the day because of this a large balcony and patio doors open out overlooking the canal from the living room. The sunset lights up the hills opposite so the early evening views on a sunny day are very easy on the eye.

Wildlife: being on the side of the canal and at the edge of the countryside means there is quite a bit of wildlife around, the most common being Bats, Ducks, Squirrels, Geese in that order you will also see Herons and the fields opposite have Llamas in them now and again you see a wild deer and foxes but since the Llamas have moved in the deer are not as common. You see people fishing quite often along the canal bank ( often with little success ) maybe because this stretch is between to locks both very close to each other.
