A monument at Bishop Park marks the highest point in Oldham, at 1233 feet above sea level.

The monument commemorates a local family who gave the land at Bishop Park to the Borough of Oldham.

From this point you can see four counties - Lancashire, Yorkshire, Cheshire and Derbyshire, and even as far as Wales on a clear day.


Pitch & Putt with golf driving range is now leased and run by a private business.  There is now a café on site open for all to enjoy.
