Explore 'The Trail of the Oldham Pals'

This trail is designed to guide you on a walk through Oldham town centre. By following this trail you will find out more about Oldham during the First World War. The walk will take you to many places with links to the 24th Manchester Regiment. This battalion of local men was also known as The Oldham Pals, and alternatively as The Oldham Comrades. A century ago the town of Oldham was proud to raise this battalion of ordinary working men to contribute to the war effort. Today we are proud to remember their contribution and retell their story.
