The Parting of the Ways
This road junction is probably what most people remember about Ripponden.
The road to the right is the A58, one of the former main east to west trunk roads, which climbs to the Lancashire border at Blackstone Edge on the Pennine tops, before dropping down to Littleborough, Rochdale and beyond.
The road straight ahead is the A672. This passes through Rishworth before climbing to meet the M62 motorway on Saddleworth Moor, before going on to Oldham.
