A planning application has been submitted to build on undeveloped greenbelt land near the historic site of Bamford Hall (Norden). Local objectors believe that were it to go ahead, this would set an unwelcome precedent.
Plans to prevent off-road bikers destroying local woodland came a step closer this week with the installation of new gates at woodland access points around Paperhouse Bridge in Norden and off School Lane in Ashworth.
Norden residents are being asked for their help to find a foal which has been stolen in Pilsworth. People in Norden are being asked to be on the lookout for the animal after rumours of sightings in the area.
