About the location
Diggle 3 miles; Oldham 5 miles; Huddersfield 15 miles.
Uppermill is one of seven villages situated amongst the 18,0000 acres of moorland hills, open fields and scenic valleys that comprise the Saddlworth area. These Pennine villages have a wool spinning and agricultural heritage dating back to the Industrial Revolution, but today Saddleworth has evolved into an attractive South Pennine and Peak District National Park area with breathtaking views and glorious stone built buildings. Upper Mill is a thriving village popular with tourists with a good range of amenities including plenty of restaurants, cafes and pubs, as well as a growing number of craft shops. Part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, it is located close to the recently restored Standedge Canal Tunnel, Britain's longest, deepest and highest canal tunnel. The canal which runs through the town provides opportunities for traffic-free walks along the towpath, fishing and boating. There is one unique sport local to Uppermill called "cobbling". It involves a barrel of cobblestones, a closed road and a bag of cement - come and visit to find out more. Saddleworth is home to a wide range of festivals and community events, the most famous of which is the Whit Friday Band contest, which attracts the UK’s and Europe’s top brass bands and was the backdrop to the film ‘Brassed Off’. Nearby attractions include Dovestones Reservoir for boating and walks, and the Castleshaw Valley with an interpretation trail for a Roman fort, the highest of a series built on the Roman military road from Chester to York.
