The Saddleworth rushcart under construction in Uppermill. The Whit weekend of 2019 will feature the 45th Saddleworth Rushcart Festival. This spectacular community event involves the massed ranks of the nation’s morris men and culminates each year at St Chad’s church above Uppermill. The rushes are traditionally used to insulate the church floor throughout the winter months. Religious observances are followed by dancing, drinking, wrestling and gurning.
