If you’ve heard of Oldham, you’ve probably not heard good things. In fact almost everything I’ve ever heard about Oldham has been negative(speaking as a long term resident). The occasional shocking football result aside. Oldham generally delivers negative feedback across the board.  Weather it’s lack of jobs or racial tensions, Oldham seems to be one of many forgotten northern satellite towns people are desperate to leave.  I’m going to see if people are sometimes a product of their environment and ask people who have grown up, are growing up and haven’t quite grown up what it’s like to grow up in Oldham and discover what sort of person Oldham produces and what people from Oldham really think about it.
