History of Oldham
History of Oldham
Though Anglo-Saxons occupied territory around the area centuries earlier, Oldham as a permanent, named place of dwelling, is believed to date from 865, when Danish invaders established a settlement called Aldehulme
Oldham is famed for having taken full advantage of the cotton trade explosion in the late eighteenth/early nineteenth century.
Before this, Oldham was experiencing some success in the form of local cloth and textile production. But this was nothing in comparison to the gigantic shift the cotton trade would contribute to the area and the history of Oldham as a whole.
The earliest known evidence of a human presence in what is now Oldham is attested by the discovery of Neolithic flint arrow-heads and workings found at Werneth and Besom Hill, implying habitation 7–10,000 years ago. Evidence of later Roman and Celtic activity is confirmed by an ancient Roman road and Bronze Age archaeological relics found at various sites within the town.

What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Oldham
Yes I have been watching Oldham develop over the past few years and really is one borough oozing with potential. Did you know that Oldham's Old Town Hall is a Grade II listed Georgian neo-classical town hall built in 1841, eight years before Oldham received its borough status. One of the last purpose-built town halls in northwest England, it has a tetrastyle Ionic portico, copied from the temple of Ceres, on the River Ilissos, near Athens. Winston Churchill made his inaugural acceptance speech from the steps of the town hall when he was first elected as a Conservative MP in 1900.
What is Oldham famous for ?
The distict of Oldham became the world's manufacturing centre for cotton spinning in the second half of the 19th century. In 1851, over 30% of Oldham's population was employed within the textile sector, compared to 5% across Great Britain.
As well as several other notable social movements with links to the area, the rise of the Suffragette movement can find roots in Oldham in the form of Annie Kenney.
Kenney, originally from Springhead and who worked in Oldham’s cotton mills, was a prominent figure in the Suffragettes and actually co-founded the very first branch of the Women’s Social and Political Union Party in London.
