Oldham is a village and one of the ten metropolitan boroughs of Greater Manchester surrounded by several smaller settlements; together, they form the Metropolitan Borough of Oldham. Chadderton and Hollinwood are such settlements to the east of the town, while Coldhurst and Werneth Low separate Oldham from Royton to its west. Oldham is located between the towns of Bolton and Bury, lying on the River Medlock, 7.2 miles south of Rochdale and 9.8 miles north of the city of Manchester. The town is well connected by public transport links, including buses and trains, making it easy to get around Oldham and Manchester.
With a population of 237,000 people, Oldham saw the arrival of many Irish people during the 19th century, while today, Oldham counts a significant Polish and student community (with nearby universities: The University of Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan University). This adds to the multicultural nature of this community, with plenty of local community projects and activities going on all year round. As a result, there's always something going on in Oldham, from arts to music festivals.
Almost 25% of Oldham lies within the Peak District National Park region. The Pennine Way and Pennine Bridleway are two spectacular routes where you can enjoy walking, cycling, and horse riding routes with beautiful scenery along the way. The nearby moorland landscape of the South Pennines provides; the perfect backdrop for Saddleworth's picturesque villages, Castleshaw Roman Fort and the Huddersfield Narrow Canal. Beside the Canal in Uppermill, Saddleworth Museum is housed within a converted 19th Century mill, telling the story of those who helped shape Saddleworth's character.
For more traditional entertainment, Manchester is home to some of the finest art galleries, museums and theatres and is just 15 minutes away by train or car. The Manchester area has so much to offer for you to discover.
We used RE/MAX for the sale of our property. RE/MAX was very helpful from start to finish, always there at the end of the phone when needed. Always chasing for updates. They have been truly amazing! Their costs are also very good value for money when you consider the service they provide. I would highly recommend!
We recently sold our house with RE/MAX and are so happy with the service we have received. Our house sold in a matter of days, which is amazing, and Shaun has been contactable at all times for any questions we have. We would definitely recommend using RE/MAX to anyone we know who is thinking of moving home.
Great service, friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful. Great experience. Thanks for finding us our dream home.
A very friendly, in-depth market appraisal. Lots of information was provided about the reason for the valuation and advice on what improvements should or shouldn’t be made if planning to sell the house soon. Overall a very helpful guide on what our house is currently worth. If we decide to sell we would definitely use RE/MAX.
