Need a plumber? Fancy a take-away? The directory is the place to go. The directory is building up and we aim to eventually list every local business. Support your local traders and check our directory before calling in someone from afar, some are even offering special offers exclusively for LittleboroughLocal users. If you're hungry, you can download a take-away menu from here as well.


Littleborough's greatest feature is it's beautiful scenery.  The rolling Pennine hills, Hollingworth Lake and the newly restored Canal offer fantastic photo opportunities.  Browse our gallery and feast your eyes on the fantastic pictures that have been submitted by LittleboroughLocal users.  If you feel inspired then why not grab a camera and take some of your own?  Don't forget to send them to us - we'd love to see them.  The gallery also contains a selection of videos of the local area.
