Press photography Saddleworth – photos of the Diggle Cake Race
Photographs taken on Boat Lane, Diggle, close to the Diggle Hotel.
Runners starting out on the Diggle Cake Race. The winner covered the cross country course over the Pennines to Marsden and back in just over an hour.
The race is called the ‘cake race’ because members of Kilngreen Church in Diggle bake cakes for all the finishing runners.
