One of the nice things about Whitworth is that it only has one main road - Market Street - and this runs right the way through the entire valley, from Healey Corner at the Rochdale end (south), to the Bacup boundary at Britannia (north), and the Whitworth Museum is just a short way from the main road, at roughly the central point of the valley. Below you will find a detailed map of our location, and also a link to the Multimap site, where you can find a very detailed map of the whole Whitworth area if you are coming from further afield: click here to find us on the Bing Maps site:

If you are travelling by public transport there is a regular bus service through the valley, with stops just a very short walk from the museum (ask for the 'Sportsmans' pub, or the 'Band Club'. This service is the 464 and a timetable showing full details can be found at the Rosso website: - click here for a timetable:
