Pennine Helicopters offer helicopter rides from numerous locations throughout Northern England. They offera pleasure flight taking in the beautiful Saddleworth countryide. This 15 minute flight departs from The Huntsman at Holmfirth, West Yorkshire travelling at a height of around 1500 feet. The flight takes in the local Moors, villages and hamlets along the western side of the Pennines. Saddleworth has great history originally for domestic wool production and following the Industrial Revolution it became a centre for cotton spinning and weaving. Now world famous for the annual Whit Friday Brass Band Competitions and the incredibly popular 1940s Yanks Weekend.

You then fly over Greenfield, Uppermill, Delph and Denshaw Villages, turning to track over Castleshaw Moor, Close Moss, skimming Butterley Reservoir at the bottom end of Wessenden Moor, to return to the site.
