History

Oldham’s history helped transform it from a small village to a mill town and became famous for its impact in textiles. Its history is vast, and covers hat making, coal mining, engineering, textile machinery and cotton spinning, for which Oldham is most famous for.

Oldham is now part of a project to make the area a centre for further education and performing arts, but is still defined architecturally by its cotton heritage.

The rich history in the area makes it an appealing place to live for residents. With many of our clients referring someone else to us, you can trust us to get the job done as efficiently as possible.

Leisure activities

In Oldham, there are lots of fun activities to participate in. For example, the Oldham Coliseum is one of Britain’s oldest theatres, being established in 1885. This offers a range of drama, music, comedy, musicals and pantomimes. There is also the gallery, which is award–winning, and has artwork which goes back to 1883.

If you are interested in nature,  there are many different parks with ample greenery and countryside, such as Tandle Hill Park, Alexandra Park amongst others.
