SADDLEWORTH plans to celebrate its Yorkshire roots on Yorkshire Day - August 1.
Saddleworth Clog and Garland Dancers, Uppermill Band and Friezland Band will take centre stage for the celebrations.
A garland of white roses will be laid in the museum car park in Uppermill at 11am.
There will be displays of the history and heritage of Saddleworth and events on the King George V playing fields in Uppermill from 11am to 3pm.
Organiser Christopher Dronsfield said local people were unhappy following local government re- organisation in 1974.
The parish council area - including Uppermill, Diggle, Greenfield and Delph - was previously part of the West Riding of Yorkshire. But, being to the west of the Pennines, it was coupled with former Lancashire towns in the Oldham district of Greater Manchester.
