Taken during the annual War Weekend event LinkExternal link
this is High Street in Uppermill Saddleworth where in August each year a three day event is held to celebrate the filming of the motion picture 'Yanks'
starring Richard Gere and Vanessa Redgrave.
Over the weekend there are various events throughout the area with a huge encampment on the Churchill playing fields in nearby Greenfield.
On the Sunday one of the biggest convoys of wartime vehicles makes its away around Saddleworth passing through the villages of
Uppermill, Delph, Standedge, Diggle, Dobcross and back to Uppermill.
If the weather is good the event brings the crowds and their cameras out who line the route through the all villages.
