Saddleworth – My Home and Playground

Saddleworth – My Home and Playground

If you know me or follow me on Twitter you will know I am not the city type. In fact I am more often than not on a trail or climb somewhere stretching the legs.  Ok, I must admit the thumb gets lots of exercise too as I keep up the twitter addiction en route, sometimes to a disastrously muddy fall – I am a man afterall, you expect me to do 2 things at once effectively? icon wink Saddleworth   My Home and Playground

I am very fortunate to have a ‘local’ training ground where I live and to be able to go up and away onto the majestic Saddleworth Moor within minutes makes my hobby much more fun.

Saddleworth is nestled in the Pennines between Manchester/Oldham and Huddersfield, northern England.  A series of villages make up the area and it has a rich history, especially as part of the Industrial Revolution and the cotton industry.

What is great for me is that there are miles and miles of hills, paths and moorland for many an adventure.  Making it a joy to put the boots on and go.  The video below gives just some insight into why I enjoy a lot of my hiking and training locally in Saddleworth:

Thank you for your time reading this.  You never know I may see you up around these parts one day.. Bring your boots icon smile Saddleworth   My Home and Playground

    Great photos ! Saddleworth is fantastic, and hiking around there every bit as good as The Lakes with the added bonus of there being far fewer people. How many people from Manchester have no idea what's out there ?
