A Geographical Study of the Diggle Valley ~ Conclusion

Section 5. Conclusion

Before I embarked upon this area of study, I could not have envisaged how so much geological, historical or agricultural could have taken place in so small an area. I am very proud to own those five acres!

Without the help of the following, I would not have been able to complete my study:-

  • Ordnance Survey map of Saddleworth, 1:25,000 1:10560
  • Extracts from the Saddleworth Historical Society
  • Extracts from the Oldham Chronicle
  • Extracts from the Saddleworth Reporter

  • Environmental Health Dept. Oldham Corporation
  • Farmers, Jim France, Alan Rhodes and Jack Beaumont
