“Starting from the brand new Oasis Academy Leesbrook building on Roxbury Avenue, the Oasis Hub and partners have created a local Heritage Trail. Follow the path down into the Leesbrook valley to find out about Glodwick Lows, the history of Lees, faith and culture in Oldham, the local mills, suffragette Annie Kenny, a prisoner of war camp, and more! The trail loops back through the valley towards Lees Road, with further boards by the corner of Breeze Hill Road.
It’s a great way to get out into some of our lovely local green spaces! You can explore the Leesbrook Valley Nature Park across Breeze Hill Road, or follow the valley in the opposite direction all the way onto Glodwick Lows.
Being outside in the fresh air is great for our mental and physical health. Why not head out, explore and learn something new today? If you’re out following the trail and finding the boards, please make sure you send us some pictures on Facebook / Twitter!”
