You may remember it as a bank, you may remember it as an Indian Restaurant, but Valley Heritage have taken ownership of the Lancashire & Yorkshire Bank on Market Street and Union Street. It’s such an iconic building, and we can’t wait for it to be back open and making a positive contribution to the beautiful town centre of Bacup.
Valley Heritage have developed a solution for the building that provides, we believe, multiple benefits to the local community. The building will contain 4 flats; 2 will be available for rent, and 2 will be to support young people at risk of homelessness, in partnership with M3 Project based in Rawtenstall.
The main space in the building, which you may have seen when you’ve come to visit us, will be a co-working space for local independent businesspeople and entrepreneurs. We know that Rossendale is full of creative and driven people with big ideas. We want to provide a space for people to establish and grow their businesses within the Valley, and to help create a sense of community.
