Latest reviews | Events in Saddleworth | 10 Places to Stay

Saddleworth is to be found lying high on the moorlands between Lancashire and Yorkshire and though it is deemed to be part of Yorkshire it is nowadays part of the Metropolitan Borough of Oldham. This town, more so than many others, has had its history shaped by the industrial events of the area rather than agricultural events. A region of dramatic natural features with fast flowing rivers and steep craggy hills that look as though someone has just tossed huge boulders on the top of them, the scenery is outstanding. Saddleworth is a collection of small villages, Delph, Diggle, Dobcross, Denshaw, Greenfield and Uppermill all lying to the North East of Manchester. Indeed at Uppermill is the Saddleworth Museum and here one can unearth the history of the area, here you can see the evidence of the prehistoric visitors, the Romans, and the early home working weavers through to the industrialists that created the wealth in the area. Today Saddleworth is a thriving community, there are regular festivals held in the area attracting many visitors to join those who come to walk the surrounding countryside and admire the sometimes bleak aspect it presents. Festivals not too miss are the Canal Festival held in the Spring and the Beer Walk a challenging 10 mile walk held in June and is a great way to see the local villages, many of the contestants dressing in fancy dress and its all for charity!
