Recreation in Saddleworth
Leisure Attractions

Besides the splendid beauty and ruggedness of the Moors, ideal for walkers, there is plenty to do in Saddleworth for those with a little time to spare.

Dovestones Reservoir is a popular place to visit, with a wide path around it made suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs. Watch out for the sheep who at certain times of the year, can be so friendly they will come to join in and eat your picnic as well.

The canal towpaths allow you to appreciate the countryside, whilst those with less energy can cruise on a narrowboat taking a journey along the canal and through the lock.

For those rainy days, Saddleworth Museum in Uppermill will keep children and adults engaged whilst learning more about the local heritage and history, and is also home to the local Tourist Association where maps and guides to the area can be obtained.

Links to some leisure attractions are shown here, whilst details on Saddleworth Community organisations who run concerts, art displays, drama and other leisure activities can be found in the Organisation section.
