Rushbearing officially dates back to the 10th Century AD and Pope Gregory: who stated that rushes should be taken to the church to be laid on the floor, to provide warmth.

The Littleborough Rushbearing festival collected food for Rochdale Foodbank all weekend.

Our sincerest thanks to all concerned with the event.
