Oldham is a fabulous town in Greater Manchester situated about 5 miles North of the City Centre.
There are many great things to do here. In the centre itself there are many great shops, restaurants and bars. As you walk around the town centre you will see many great historic buildings such as the steps of the Old Town Hall where Winston Churchill once stood as he was declared member of Parliament for Oldham.
Oldham's jewel in the crown has to be its' surrounding countryside. I would say this is on a par with the Brecon Beacons in South Wales - only just (haha). The moors above Oldham provide fantastic walking opportunities and are great for discovering historical sites of years gone by - look out for the Roman Fort! The Huddersfield narrow canal is also a great attraction to the area, it has been reformed to its' former glory and winds its' way through miles and miles of glorious Countryside, the towpaths create excellent walking/cycling opportunities for locals and visitors alike. Dotted amidst the hills you will find picturesque villages such as Delph, Dobcross, Diggle and Uppermill.
