This site summarises the people and places associated with the Springhill area of Higher Cloughfold, Rossendale, Lancashire. As it reflects my hobby, it is incomplete and somewhat quirky. However I try to include all data relevant to the area, as and when I come across it. It started as a history of Springhill house, and now covers much of Higher Cloughfold. Higher Cloughfold itself is a relatively new name for the area; some of the other names by which the village has been called are given here.
