The Museum in 2009

Saddleworth Museum is an independent museum in Uppermill village, Saddleworth, Metropolitan Borough of Oldham, Greater Manchester, England. It is a registered charity and was accredited by the MLA.

The museum opened in 1962 and is housed in the outbuildings of the Victoria Mill, a 19th-century mill building which stood beside the Huddersfield Narrow Canal. Its collections show the history of Saddleworth,[1] which until 1974 local government reorganisation was part of the West Riding of Yorkshire. As of April 2016 the museum is being refurbished and there is a temporary cabin in place while work on the building continues; re-opening is planned for later in 2016.[2]
