Rochdale is one of the many towns in the north west of England which grew up rapidly and flourished for several generations as the scene of frantic experiment and growth during the 'industrial revolution' of western Europe. To the east of the urban concentration is to be found a lake which for several generations has served as the setting for fishing, boating, fairground and other recreational activities for a workforce often unable in the past to venture further afield for entertainment and diversion. It remains a popular venue for people of all kinds and throughout the year. Blackstone Edge is the prospect which greets you as you look east from the town and lake - a local moorland summit inviting you to explore the Pennine Hills which are the geological backbone of England.This movement ends with a reference back to the Rochdale town centre Esplanade (see LANDSCAPES OF ROCHDALE 1. Esplanade and Toad Lane),where is still to be seen the very imposing Victorian Town Hall looking across parkland to the narrow, winding River Roch - which give Rochdale its name, and the northern Pennine hills.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
