SADDLEWORTH

Saddleworth is a small town encounted when travelling from Auburn to Eudunda. Saddleworth is also a crossroads town. Heritage and looking after that history is very important at Saddleworth.

The Museum is a classic case in point. An old store on the Barrier Highway has been converted into a museum which focuses on the history of Saddleworth and the nearby towns of Waterloo, Marrabel, and Manoora. This is a must visit for all visitors to Saddleworth.

Saddleworth is a small town in the Mid North region of South Australia. The town is situated on the Gilbert River.

Saddleworth was originally established as one of many settlements on the road to Burra, and was named after Saddleworth Lodge pastoral station, a local landholding which itself was named after a town of Saddleworth in Yorkshire

The town has a Heritage Walking Trail. At three km it provides an insight into the history of the area.

The Catholic Church overlooks the town. The site of the church is just amazing. The Anglican likewise is a great building. The United and Lutheran a little more modern.

The Gilbert Valley Hotel opposite the Museum is over a 100 years old and worth a look. The other is modern.

The Saddle worth War Memorial is at the T point on the intersection and gets a great profile.

Saddleworth deserves more than a cursory look over. If you visit the museum allow over half a day.
