About the Project

Since November 2013 a team of dedicated volunteers have invested their time to help retain Hare Hill House as a community asset for the people of Littleborough.

Led by The MoorEnd Development Trust. we are campaigning to lease the property from Rochdale Council and invest in longer-term plans for the development of Hare Hill House into a self-financing community, arts and micro-business centre for the Littleborough Community.

The Trust, Friends of Hare Hill House and other volunteers and local businesses are working to further develop Hare Hill House into a thriving centre that will:

  • Provide a vibrant venue for community groups and activities
  • Support local employment
  • Provide a community cafe to act as both an informal meeting place and a training hub
  • Promote tourism and arts in the region
  • Work with other groups to provide a focal point for community events
  • Enable visitors to understand the history of the House, the families that lived in it and their significance in the development of the Township of Littleborough.
