Saddleworth is the collective name for the area which includes several picturesque
villages in the Pennine hills to the east of Oldham on the Yorkshire/Lancashire border.
Historically in the most westerly part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, Saddleworth became part
of Oldham, Greater Manchester, in the 1974 local government reorganisation.
The area boasts a vibrant wealth of amateur music activity, including choirs, operatic societies,
and brass bands, of which 'our' choir is proud and privileged to be an integral part.
