Features and Facilities
Northern England region
The upper reaches of the River Tame, and its numerous tributaries define Saddleworth geographically. Its valleys contain the villages of Denshaw, Delph, Dobcross, Diggle, Uppermill and Greenfield and, in the more heavily populated western part of the parish, Scouthead, Austerlands, Friezland, Grasscroft, Lydgate, Grotton and Springhead.
A large proportion of the parish is heather moorland, a special landscape protected by two international designations.
Situated on the west side of the Pennines, but historically part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, Saddleworth has long looked in
two directions: over the top, eastward to the towns of Huddersfield, Halifax and Leeds and westward to its Lancashire
neighbours of Oldham, Ashton, Rochdale and Manchester.
Like other Pennine parishes, it is large, at 7,588 hectares, (29.3 sq miles), predominantly rural with a population approaching
25,000. Saddleworth shares little in common with the small village parishes of middle England.
Saddleworth's strengths; its largely prosperous, healthy, and well-educated local population and its strong community spirit,
manifest in the large number of voluntary societies and organisations and communal festivals such as the annual Whit
Friday Brass Band Contest, the Rush Cart Weekend, the Saddleworth Beer Walk , the Yanks weekend from the success of the film, and the Saddleworth Festival of the Arts.
