Things to do in Saddleworth, Greater Manchester
The area of Saddleworth encompasses several villages, they are Denshaw, Delph, Diggle, Uppermill, Greenfield and Grasscroft.
However, in 1974 much to the dismay of the residents, Saddleworth was placed in Oldham, Greater Manchester, for the convenience of the council.
Many of the residents refuse to accept this and still say they live in Yorkshire.
In earlier times the inhabitants were mostly farming communities.
This has led to lots of new houses being built.
Dovestone has sailing on the lake and a walk with wheelchair access all the way round, (the walk takes about 1.5 hours).
Uppermill is the main village, which is popular with tourists, it has plenty of cafe facilities and lots of shops, there is a children's playground, walks along the canal and a lovely garden centre with its own cafe just outside the main village.
