    Yes, I agree totally. Dan shouldn't you be on tv instead of some of them other characters that "try" to tell us about prehistoric sites - naming no names, of course.Exclamation

    Hi i am new to this forum and thought i would join as its interesting.
    There seems to be a lot of people who do not know there locations, saddleworth is in the county palatine of the West Riding of Yorkshire, it is not in Lancashire, yes Oldham council administer the area now but they have now put new signs up as you enter Saddleworth with the white rose of yorkshire on them and stating tha its a part of yorkshire, same with Oldham and Rochdale they have always been in Lancashire and still are, the county palatines have never been abolished all that changed in 1974 were the administration areas not the counties,Greater Manchester is not a county but an administration area and never replaced the counties of Lancashire Cheshire or Yorkshire and Oldham council celebrates Lancashire day in november and saddleworth celebrates yorkshire day....you cant take peoples affiliations away from them as to what county there loyalties belong to, mine belong to lancashire as I was born in Salford Lancashire..........

    Hello Lancastrian welcome to TNA. Apologies about that, was it me at fault. Saddleworth is in Yorkshire - would that be 'the peoples republic of west Yorkshire' as opposed to 'the peoples republic of south Yorkshire'. I went to school in Rochdale in the early 70s and I think it was Lancashire then, but later became part of Greater Manchester, now back in Lancashire again - what a mess it is. Anyhow, please enjoy yourself on the forum and if you have any good stuff, please fire away and lets have it on here. Ray.

    This is over 50 miles out and must be some kind of record it takes you just east of the Buttertubs pass above Muker into Swaledale
    Colne parish church is SD 88885 40124 the term "friendly fire" comes to mind if you were giving the co-ordinates !
    cheers Danny
