And being pedantic, when the Standedge Tunnels were built they ran from Marsden in Yorkshire to Diggle (Saddleworth) also in Yorkshire. The 1972 boundary changes moved Saddleworth into Greater Manchester, not Lancashire, most local folk still have a strong attachment to the West Ridding of Yorkshire and the Saddleworth road signs proudly displays the white rose of Yorkshire
