Saddleworth Moor is a moorland in North West England. Reaching more than 1,312 feet (400 m) above sea level, it is in the Dark Peak area of the Peak District National Park. It is crossed by the A635 road and the Pennine Way passes to its eastern side.
The moor was the burial site of at least four victims of Ian Brady and Myra Hindley, the Moors murderers.
In October 1965, the bodies of Lesley Ann Downey and John Kilbride were discovered. John Kilbride was murdered on the moors by Brady.
