Our 30 minute flight takes in some of the most famous places of the county of Greater Manchester, heart of the industrial revolution. From Barton you will fly to Rochdale, the manor of which was once owned by Lord Byron. It was one of the most productive cotton spinning towns in the world and is famous for Gracie Fields and Bill Oddie, amongst others. We follow the canal to Todmorden on the southern edge of the dramatic Pennines, Bronte country and home to two Nobel Prize winners - Sir John Cockcroft for physics in 1951 and Sir Geoffrey Wilkinson for chemistry in 1973. Then it's on to Bacup, once home to Beatrix Potter. Bacup is the best preserved cotton town in England and a conservation area which, until 2006, had the shortest street in the world - at 17 feet! You will then head back over the wind farm and Bury towards the familiar skyline of Manchester before landing back at the airport.
