Saddleworth Museum and Gallery

The Saddleworth Museum stands in a beautiful and historic location beside the Huddersfield Canal in the village of Uppermill, nestled in the hills in the middle of the area known as Saddleworth, an old Yorkshire Parish with its own identity. Uppermill is a busy, thriving village with lovely canal towpath walks, many small independent shops and plenty of places to eat & drink.

The Museum Galleries and Shop are open every day (except Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day).
Monday to Sunday 1-4 pm


Saddleworth Museum Galleries
Our modern galleries, with something for everyone, are amongst the best available for a museum of our size and type. We are an independent museum, a registered charity and an accredited museum. We are reliant on admission charges as part of our income and onward sustainability.
