Nestling in the foothills of the Pennines in the south east of the County of Lancashire is the town of Chadderton close to Oldham. Historically its geographical location meant that up until the 18th century that this area was very much reliant on an agricultural based economy. However the coming of the cotton industry was to change the face of Chadderton and the surrounding towns from that moment on. Between 1776 and 1801 the local population grew from 2,000 to around 3,500 just one hundred years later and the population was recorded as being some 24,900 that was the power of industry, generating mass employment, it is recorded that some 6,000 worked in the cotton mills alone. In its heyday there had been 60 mills built in the town and cotton was being produced at a phenomenal rate but by 2000 no mills were left, all falling victim to a decline through the last century in demand for cotton from the UK. Today Chadderton benefits from an excellent road network, the A627(M) leads to the trans Pennine M62 and from there links with the rest of the UK motorway network. The canal system that one helped local industry grow is today an area more used to seeing tourists and there are plans to construct a marina. With a good town centre and a regular Wednesday market Chadderton has managed to overcome the loss of its industry and find a new way forward.
