Saddleworth Moor is an area of the South Penninesmarker in northern England. It is a sparsely populated moorland and millstone grit divided between the metropolian boroughs of Oldhammarker and Kirkleesmarker, in Greater Manchestermarker and West Yorkshire respectively.

Deep valleys cut into the landscape of Saddleworth Moor, traversed by A roads between the Greater Manchester Urban Areamarker and the West Yorkshire Urban Areamarker.

The moor became infamous as the burial site of a number of the victims of Ian Brady and Myra Hindley. As a result, the crimes were dubbed the Moors murders.

The Pennine Waymarker arrives from the Wessenden valley to the north and crosses the moor on its ascent to Black Hillmarker on Holme Mossmarker to the south.

The A635 road, known locally as the Isle of Skye road, passes across the moor. It takes its name from a public house which was sited at Wessenden Head before it was demolished after a fire.
