Saddleworth

Overview

Saddleworth is a cluster of villages and hamlets hidden away in the Pennines between the Yorkshire and Lancashire borders. In 1974 the Local Government Act of 72 abolished the Urban District of Saddleworth and the West Riding County Council and created the new Metropolitan Borough of Oldham. Saddleworth now found itself in Lancashire. A stone's throw from Manchester and Leeds, it's now near the heart of the ‘Northern Powerhouse’.

Saddleworth is a collaboration between George and Jack Springthorpe that looks at how the boundary changes have affected this unique area, its people and where they stand today, on the brink of what could be an important time for the North.
