Review of Horwich by Julia Harrison on July 31st, 2013
Little undiscovered gem with access to the West Pennine Moors. Dog friendly, with fantastic walks at Rivington and if you can bring a bike it's a fabulous double with walking the dog on a bike! Lots of pubs and a choice of restaurants, why do more people not know about Horwich? Beaches on the banks of the reservoirs and woods with off lead walking it is a doggy paradise.
