Help connect Uppermill

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Uppermill’s Slow Ways.

It is quite heavily wooded which means it doesn't have great views in spring and summer, but that doesn't really detract from it. Nice piece of public art by local artist Chris Cyprus at the start too. (See photo) Richly deserves its snail!...

A pleasant half day walk from the attractive Saddleworth village of Uppermill to the other end of the Stanedge tunnel at Marsden. Unnecessarily complicated route out of Uppermill, much easier to follow the Pennine bridleway. Great views once you’ve climbed up onto the moorland and down into Marsden....

Navigation would have been easier if the route had followed either the Pennine Bridleway (which partly involves some quiet roads), or possibly the Huddersfield Narrow Canal, as far as Diggle. The route behind the Diggle Hotel was also unsigned and difficult to find, looking like private gardens; and again, the Pennine Bridleway would be much easier to follow. The route down into Marsden, has marvellous views of the town. An alternative is simply to use Old Mount Road, which is very quiet, and easier going, but this route going through a farm is fine, but a bit steep and rocky in places....

A pleasant low level route which drops down the main road from Mossley station to Bottoms and then follows a former railway line (route of the Tame Valley Way and Pennine Bridleway) through to Uppermill. Views of the valley through the trees on a nice day in January but probably few views in the summer when the trees are in leaf....

A nice walk which we started at Uppermill and combined with two other Sloways to do a 9m circular route via Springhead/Grotton and Mossley....

It is just a few hundred metres from Mossley Station (still in use) to the beautifully restored Micklehurst Station on the completely separate, but parallel line....

There is a pedestrian level crossing near the start, and then a walled path through woods, with lovely views of the town below....

Follow this until it meets another rocky and wet track and turn right up the hill (the Slow Ways map suggests there's an earlier path to the right up the hill but I couldn't find any trace of it. However it's not a long diversion) This track emerges on Platting Road. This brings you on to a well defined track across the shoulder of Wharmton hill (There's a TV transmitter to your right) Follow the path until it begins to descend and cross a stile onto a steep, narrow and rocky path, which eventually brings you out on a narrow lane (Ladcastle Road)....
