Local history

The village may have been the site of a Roman settlement named Cambodunum. A Roman altarstone dated to AD 208 was found in 1597 at Bank Top, Greetland [1]

The village was served by the Greetland railway station from 1844 to 1962.

Local geography

Greetland is situated primarily around Stainland Road and Saddleworth Road & Rochdale Road, with much of the village located on one side of the steep hill that separates the two latter roads. West Vale is a part of Greetland, and acts as Greetland's village centre.
