Saddleworth is a unique place, a district with a Yorkshire heritage located on the Lancashire side of the Pennines. It’s famed for its picturesque stone houses, hillside views and strong traditions.
Part of Oldham Metropoolitan Borough since 1974, it has retained its strong and distinctive identity. The symbol for Saddleworth is the white rose of Yorkshire. It’s only around eight miles from Manchester city centre
