Latest reviews | Events in Oldham | 10 Places to Stay

Eric Sykes, Dora Bryan, Bernard Cribbins, Cannon and Ball, Syd Little (of Little and Large), Philip Schofield, Anne Kirkbride Michael Atherton, David Platt, Paul Scholes all come from this place that lies just north of Manchester and was originally famed for being the centre of the textile industry. Oldham is today made up of the boroughs of Chadderton, Crompton, Failsworth, Lees, Royton and Saddleworth all of which contributed to the flourishing textile industry of the 18th century. The town can trace its roots back to the 11th century and with few natural resources Oldham was to remain so until the Industrial Revolution. What Oldham did have was high humidity and reserves of coal. It was these assets that encouraged the development of the mills and cotton that was to dramatically change the fortunes of this North West town. The engineers of the time created the canals, railways and roads which made Oldham central to the cotton industry on both sides of the Pennines. In 1887 Oldham alone was responsible for 13% of the world’s production of cotton, Oldham was recognised as the greatest cotton spinning town in the world. Together with the growth in mill building came a demand for more steam engines and engineering in Oldham became an important industry in its own right. The industry continues today but on a much lesser scale, the mid to late 20th century saw a decline in cotton production as the industry moved abroad. This left Oldham with a rich Victorian architecture that is still in evidence today. Despite a reputation for being mainly an industrial area Oldham has at its centre Alexandra Park built in 1865 and covering some 70 acres with boating lake and a pagoda built as an observatory in 1899. There is also the recently opened Gallery Oldham one of the most progressive galleries in the North West with an impressive collection including works by Constable, Turner and Lowry.
