Saddleworth Museum

Situated on Uppermill High Street, the Museum is full of intriguing objects from the past and tells the story of the people who have created Saddleworth's landscape and character. The museum covers the story of the Romans at Castleshaw, the weavers in their cottages, the woollen mills and the brass bands of Saddleworth. Changing exhibitions highlight other different aspects of Saddleworth life from the past.

Events are organised throughout the year, including Textile Machinery Working days, coffee mornings and craft workshops. A Farmers Market is held here on the second Sunday of each month, selling locally grown and produced vegetables, meat, fresh bread and pies amongst arrays of other tempting items.

The Museum is easily accessible and family friendly with plenty for children to do, and during the school holidays runs events especially for children including fun activities and story telling.

The Art Gallery is situated within the Museum, exhibiting artwork from local artists, some of which is available to buy, and also holds various exhibitions throughout the year.

There is a small charge for entry to the Museum. Entrance to the Art Gallery is free.
