This is a growing residential area of Rossendale with almost 6,000 people now living in the picturesque surroundings.
Adjacent to the busy A56, Helmshore has a large industrial estate that boasts some of the Valley’s biggest businesses, but shops are limited with a few on Broadway Parade and Broadway Crescent and a travel agent and paper shop on Helmshore Road.
Mill shops and a café are located on Holcombe Road and dotted around the area are a number of pubs and restaurants. A working farm open to the public – Cronkshawfold is just outside the village centre and overlooking Helmshore is Musbury Tor, a key landmark.
