Footpath 100 Saddleworth runs from Old Lane, Dobcross, Saddleworth North to Buckley Street with a short branch leading on to Chapel Street both coming out on to High Street Uppermill Saddleworth South. It is a nice alternative route when walking from Dobcross to Uppermill.

The above footpath shown in green is FP100 Saddleworth. The blue lines shown on FP100 are sections that were overgrown late last summer. The first section at Old Lane footbridge and the second section at Higher Ryefields. This sterling work was carried out by the Oldham Ramblers Footpath Clearance Team in August 2020.

These overgrown sections of the footpath 100 are now neat and tidy and are definitely fit for walkers to enjoy thanks to the volunteers that clear footpath all year in and around Oldham. The footpath team are out in all weathers throughout clearing footpaths every week from April until October.

Mike Lawton (strimmer) cleared Ryefields section and Ken Smith and Martin Riley cleared the footbridge.
