  • Title: Saddleworth Online Home Page
    Descriptive info: .. Saddleworth lies in the West Riding of Yorkshire.. It covers over 18,000 acres much of which is open land with breathtaking views from hills over looking scenic valleys.. Most of the population resides in beautiful villages, each with their own distinct character.. The area is rich in history with many myths and legends.. It is also famous for a few some what darker moments.. One being the Bill-O-Jacks murders in 1832 at the Moorcock Inn, when the Landlord and his son were bludgeoned to death.. The case has never been solved.. The Inn has long since been demolished, but the site where it stood can easily be picked out from the A635 Holmfirth road looking down towards Greenfield reservoir.. A gravestone at Saddleworth Parish Church is a grim reminder of the event that shocked the community.. Uppermill is Saddleworth's main village.. It is home to the.. Saddleworth Museum.. , craft shops, tea rooms and several pubs.. It is also the place to begin a canal boat trip on the Huddersfield narrow canal.. Visit.. Saddleworth Canal Cruises.. for more details.. Although closed and segmented for many years the canal was re-opened by H.. R.. H Prince of Wales on September 3rd 2001.. The.. Pennine Waterways.. web site has more details on  ...   the area.. The Millgate theatre is home to the Saddleworth Players who make several first class productions every year and the Saddleworth Film Society who show cultural films.. Denshaw.. sits at the junction of three turnpike roads, now the A640, A672 and A6052.. The Junction Inn Coaching House placed at the centre served travelers of the past with refreshments.. It's still a welcome site for people today who need reviving after a long walk or cycle ride.. Millgate Delph.. Greenfield village nestles below Dovestone Reservoir.. It has several shops including a bakery and chemist.. There are also many quite roads suitable for cyclists and walkers alike.. Dovestone reservoir has a sailing club where courses are run for beginners.. There is ample car parking, but during summer weekends and bank holidays get there early to ensure you find a place.. Dovestone Reservoir, Greenfield.. The Brownhill Countryside Centre, just below the Saddleworth viaduct (which was opened in 1949 to carry the Manchester to Huddersfield railway) is well worth a visit.. It has lots of information on local wildlife.. The canal is to the rear where a pleasant walk can be undertaken down stream to the.. Museum and Art Gallery.. at Uppermill.. Saddleworth Sites.. [..

  • Title: index
    Descriptive info: Geological Saddleworth.. Hello and welcome.. My name is Chris Ellison and I am a 20 year old student who lives in Diggle, Saddleworth in Yorkshire, whilst not at University in Norwich! As a current third year undergraduate studying for a BSc.. Environmental Science degree at the University of East Anglia, I have developed a passion for the Geological and Earth Sciences over the past two years and in the pages that follow, I intend to add even more appeal to the already inspiring environment in the Saddleworth district by revealing its complex geological history.. As my geological knowledge expanded, I only then realised that Saddleworth actually displays some exquisite sedimentalogical characteristics and these are quite easily observed all  ...   were deposited during the more recent ice ages over the last 2.. 5 Million years in a period known as the Quaternary.. Please express your interest at the e-mail address below.. My study takes me to the United States in the academic year 2000/2001 and I may acquire a separate e mail address which will be also be added to the pages if necessary.. There are quite a few photographs and diagrams within these pages, all of which complement the text and are well worth any short wait for downloading to your browser.. I would be happy to hear your responses to my page, so please do not hesitate to e mail!.. chris_ellison10@hotmail.. com.. Saddleworth Online.. First Page..

  • Title: magnetic
    Descriptive info: Geological History of Saddleworth.. The rocks exposed in the Saddleworth region reveal a fascinating history of how the land around us was formed.. The typical rocks exposed here are commonly known as millstone grits due to their coarse sandstone texture.. These feldspar and quartz rich deposits are dominant but are associated with siltstones, mudstones, marine shales and minor coal deposits which can also be seen in the area.. This rock group has an average thickness of around 2000m.. The origin of these geological facies lies  ...   of Upper Carboniferous age and therefore date between 310-290 Million (Ma) yrs before present (BP).. At this time, Saddleworth (and indeed the British Isles) had a very different climate as a result of its dramatically different position on earth.. Magnetic analysis of the geological rock record has revealed an apparent polar wandering where it is clear that the British Isles have gradually moved from the southern hemisphere to our present latitude in the sub-polar northern hemisphere.. (See fig 1 below).. Fig 1.. Previous Page.. Next Page..

  • Title: Palaeo
    Descriptive info: PALAEO - ENVIRONMENT OF SADDLEWORTH IN THE UPPER CARBONIFEROUS.. At the time of Saddleworth s formation, the UK was experiencing equatorial environments, including tropical deltas and low lying swamps.. The organic material in the swamp environments lead to the large coal formations extensive in Yorkshire and the ancient deltas are essentially what are exposed in Saddleworth.. (See fig 2 below)..  ...   the highlands of Scotland and Norway, therefore deducing drainage from the north.. As well as from the north, deltas also advanced from the southwest from a past island known as St.. George s land.. Temporary readvances of the sea are indicated by the presence of fossil.. goniatites.. which is a type of shallow marine cephalopod (See Fig 3 below).. Fig 3..

  • Title: evidence
    Descriptive info: GEOLOGICAL EVIDENCE IN SADDLEWORTH.. Observing these features in Saddleworth is relatively easy once one knows the basic form of evidence to look for.. The growth of a delta front is created by the continuous deposition of sediment from a landmass onto the submarine slope.. A modern analogue would be the Egyptian River Nile delta or the delta on the River Ganges, Bangladesh.. Outflow from a river gives the shallow waters a uni-directional current flow and typically beds (or layers) of sediment drape over each other as they accumulate.. (See Fig 4 below).. Fig 4.. These deltaic flow directions and  ...   be deduced as from left to right as classic S curve prograding bed features can be seen.. Also evident from this photograph is the evolution of the past submarine slope deposits with the upward variation in bed thickness (7 beds in all with 3 thinner strata at hammer-head level).. (See Fig 5 below).. Fig 5.. The figure 6 below explains the development of the cross-bedding seen in the photograph above.. Fig 6.. Exposures like this are common and a larger example can be seen below (Fig 7).. Flow is again left to right in the ancient delta.. Fig 7..

  • Title: cycles
    Descriptive info: CYCLES OF DEPOSITION EVIDENT WITHIN THE SURROUNDING REGION.. In any delta, changes in the depth of water, variations in the rate or nature of sediment supply and alterations in the strength and direction of water currents are reflected in the character of the sediment laid down.. If these factors change gradually, there should be a vertical transition from one rock type to another (ie relationship with depth mainly).. The further out to sea, lighter (finer grained) sediment will be deposited due to the lower energy away from the dynamic river.. Similarly, coarse grained sands are closer to the land as they are heavie.. r and sink in higher energy environments.. As this process continues and the delta front grows, it is logical to see that fine sediment deposited further out to sea  ...   is recorded in the Saddleworth surrounding region (Oldham and Ashton areas) as shown in figure 9.. Fig 8.. Fig 9.. After all these sediments were laid down in the upper Carboniferous, the formation of the supercontinent known as Pangea caused the formation of mountainous in a process known as orogeny.. This was caused by plate collision and compression which results in the uplift of land.. This caused the rocks in Saddleworth to be folded and faulted which can be seen in the dipping beds in the Diggle exposures (next page).. As a result, the Pennines were formed, a volcano was thought to exist over Dartmoor (leaving the remnant granite - radiometrically dated at 300-280 Ma yrs BP) and rocks all over the British Isles were folded and altered by extreme pressures and temperatures..
