‘I love a challenge. I’m one of only 10 people to sail 32,000 miles around North and South America, which I did in my own boat. I’ve climbed Mount Kilimanjaro and in December I’m rowing single-handedly across the Atlantic. Creating the roof structure for the Northern Roots Oldham Garden is a different kind of challenge. I’ve lived and worked in Oldham for forty years, so it’s also about supporting the Northern Roots project and communities in Oldham’  Frank Rothwell, Managing Director, Manchester Cabins
