Saddleworth, W. R. (7) a ham-
let in the township of Quick, parish of
Rochdale, Lancashire, wapentake of
Agbrigg, 2 miles E. from Dobcross;
a chapelry to Rochdale. This place
gives name to a large valley, about
seven miles long, and five broad, situ-
ated in the south-west extremity of the
West Riding; it is
a wild and bleak
region, of which a part only is under
cultivation, but industry has accumu-
lated hither 13,902 inhabitants, who
are chiefly occupied in the manufacture
of woollen cloth, for which the place
is peculiarly famous, many of the super-
fine broad-cloths vieing even with those
made in the west of England; some
cotton manufactures have been also
introduced. The Huddersfield canal
penetrates through the heart of Sad-
dleworth, and passes in a tunnel of
three miles length under Pule moun-
tain ; it has conferred an immense be-
nefit on this dreary region, by the faci-
lity it affords to the transit of goods
and manure. Dobcross may be con-
sidered as the capital of the district.
Hugo de Stapelton, lord of the manor
of Saddleworth, having applied to Hugh
Earl of Chester, for leave to erect a
chapel for the use of his tenants, re-
ceived permission on the Condition of
annexing it to the abbey of Whalley:
on the dissolution of the monasteries it
was annexed to the vicarage of Roch-
dale, thus the anomaly of the township
of Quick being considered in the county
of Lancaster, is accounted for. In the
district are several Druidical remains,
such as cromlechs and rocking stones.
At Castle Shaw are some traces of an
ancient fortification, which Dr. Whit-
aker considers to have been a work of
the original Britons.
