Welcome to Saddleworth Discovery Walks.
Saddleworth is a remote, picturesque upland region nestled amongst the western flanks of the Pennine Hills and lying on the northern edges of the Peak District National Park. Sitting on the former border of Yorkshire and Lancashire, the area was formerly part of the ancient West Riding of Yorkshire. Consisting of wild, windswept moors, rocky outcrops and rugged glaciated valleys, Saddleworth is a popular playground for walkers, climbers, mountain-bikers, fell-runners and other outdoor enthusiasts.
Saddleworth’s rugged moors and beautiful valleys are criss-crossed by a vast network of footpaths, bridleways and ancient packhorse trails, which allow virtual unrestricted access to enjoy the area’s wonderful landscape whilst learning about its history, culture and people.
Why not join us on one of our guided discovery walks, and learn more about the history and people of this lost corner of the former West Riding of Yorkshire?
