The picturesque village of Delph is located on the Yorkshire/Lancashire border
and has barely changed from its 19th century hey-day, when its small mills were
at the heart of a thriving community. Today it remains an ideal start for walks
up the Castleshaw Valley to the Roman Fort, one of a series built on the Roman
military road from Chester to York. Delph boasts several village festivals
including a charity beer walk blues weekend and brass band contest! Nearby, the
largest of the Saddleworth villages, Uppermill is situated in the valley below
Saddleworth Church and is dominated by an impressive viaduct. The architecture
of this attractive village is highlighted in the Local Interest Trail leaflets
available from the Tourist Information Centre. Saddleworth Museum highlights the
history of the area from Roman times and also has an art gallery with changing
exhibitions. The Huddersfield Narrow Canal runs through the village and the
canal boat trips and boat traffic attract many visitors. Other attractions
include Brownhills Countryside Centre, numerous craft shops, art galleries, gift
shops, restaurants, public houses and tea shops
