Delph Village

Delph is a village in Saddleworth in the Metropolitan Borough of Oldham. Historically within the West Riding of Yorkshire, it lies amongst the Pennines on the River Tame.

The centre of the village has barely changed from the 19th century, when a number of small textile mills provided employment for the local community.

The village is home to one of the Saddleworth Whit Friday brass band contests and has it’s own brass band. It is also home to the Millgate Arts Centre, the home of the Saddleworth Players. This group of actors puts on five plays a year, as well as hosting a number of other events throughout the year.
