    More Info:


A village in the Saddleworth parish of the Metropolitan Borough of Oldham in Greater Manchester, England. It is 4 miles (6.4 km) east of Oldham, and 13 miles (21 km) east-northeast of the city of Manchester. It lies in a broad rural area amongst the South Pennines, and borders the Peak District National Park.

Lying within the ancient county boundaries of the West Riding of Yorkshire, Greenfield is mainly situated on and around two roads in the Chew Valley in the Pennines. One of these roads is the main A635 road from Ashton-under-Lyne to Holmfirth.


A Roman road passes along the Saddleworth hills, from the fort of Ardotalia in Glossop to Castleshaw Roman fort. The route of the Roman road passes through Greenfield and crosses the Chew Brook at Packhorse Bridge.

The old stone houses of Saddleworth date from the 17th century and were home to farmers and hand-loom weavers in the woolen trade. The first industrial looms were also designed and built in Saddleworth. Englands highest church 'The Heights' and canal tunnel 'Standedge Tunnel' are also here, the latter dating from the end of the 18th century and being a Thomas Telford project.

As a matter of interest, the world's first rock climbers' sit harness was invented in Saddleworth in the 1970s, variations of it now forming the basis of almost all the world's climbing sit harnesses.

The poem Jone o Grinfilt was written about a fictional inhabitant of the village with the aim of ridiculing coutryside dwellers. The poem was written in the Oldham dialect of English, and was very popular in the 19th century.


Greenfield also contains four reservoirs, three of which are linked to one another: Greenfield, Yeoman Hey, and Dovestones. The fourth is Chew Reservoir at the head of Chew Valley, which is the highest man-made reservoir in England. There is a yachting club on Dovestone Reservoir, the largest of these, and a set of walking paths round the first three. A steep walking path also connects Dovestones to Chew Reservoir. Much of the area covered by the reservoirs lies within the boundary of the Peak District National Park.

Saddleworth Moor rises above Greenfield and leads over impressively barren and disorientating moorlands to Holmfirth. The area includes some of the sites used by Ian Brady and Myra Hindley, known as the 'Moors Murderers', to bury their child victims in the early 1960s. The sinister nature of the crimes was the subject of some songs by The Smiths in the early 1980s.


Pots and Pans is a locally well known hill overlooking the village: The monument on top is a war memorial constructed in 1923 and is sighted so that it is visible from all the seven villages that comprise Saddleworth. It is situated approx 1200 feet above sea level and every year on Remembrance Sunday a service is held there.


Saddleworth's only railway station.

Greenfield is only place in Saddleworth which has a train station (Diggle station was the other until it closed in the 1960s). Greenfield railway station lies along the Huddersfield Line with services running towards Huddersfield via Marsden and Slaithwaite and towards Manchester Victoria via Mossley, Stalybridge and Ashton-under-Lyne.

The main bus services in Greenfield are the 180 and 350, which are both run by First Manchester. The 180's terminus is in Greenfield at the Clarence Hotel and runs a half-hourly Monday-Saturday daytime service and hourly evening and Sunday service to Manchester Piccadilly via Oldham. The 180 links up at Greenfield railway station with the 184, which would have started its journey from Huddersfield, Diggle or Uppermill to provide a 10 minute Monday-Saturday daytime service and a half-hourly evening and Sunday service.

The 350 runs through Greenfield to Oldham and Ashton-under-Lyne, via Delph, Uppermill and Mossley. The 350 has the same service frequency as the 180 for its full route although it does provide a half-hourly Sunday daytime service to Ashton.

The other two bus services in Greenfield are the 353 and 354. These services are both run by Speedwell Bus in the weekly daytimes and Saturdays, and run by First Manchester in the evening and Sundays. The 353 is run from the bus terminus in Delph, Carrcote, to Ashton bus station, and the 354 from Denshaw to Ashton bus station, and in evenings, Diggle to Ashton.

These to services run approximately every two hours and nearly run exactly the same route when they have reached Dobcross Village, but with a big exception in Greenfield where the 354 run through the two main roads in Greenfield, but the 353 runs past the rail station, then carries on to Friezland before going up High Grove Road to join on the A670 at Grasscroft.
