Known for...   Industrial Revolution and Winston Churchill


Did you know...

  • At its zenith, Oldham was the most productive cotton spinning mill town in the world, spinning more cotton than France and Germany combined!
  • Annie Kenney, born in nearby Springhead, and who worked in Oldham's cotton mills, was a notable of the Suffragette movement credited with sparking off suffragette militancy when she heckled Winston Churchill, and later (with Emmeline Pankhurst) the first Suffragist to be imprisoned.
  • 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. A Blue Plaque on the exterior of the building commemorates the event.
