About the event

Overview

This is a good walk, albeit with one or two steeper sections. The route takes in the Huddersfield Narrow Canal, country lanes, weavers’ cottages and Saddleworth Church before returning through the village of Uppermill. There are a number of options to shorten the route along the way or to avoid some of the hills.

The village of Uppermill lies nestled in the hills in the middle of the area known as Saddleworth – a characterful district that was formerly part of Yorkshire. Uppermill is a busy, thriving village with lovely canal towpath walks, many small independent shops and plenty of places to eat and drink.
