Top Sholver Estate
Top Sholver Estate
Built in 1966 ,on what had been farm pastureland, the County Borough of Oldham made a start on its huge Sholver housing estates. On elevated wind swept land, some 1,000 ft. high above sea level and open to all the elements, the local authority began its scheme to provide nearly 1,700 housing units.
Today only about half that amount remain due to redevelopment at Bottom Sholver lower down the hillside.
On the horizon behind the telegraph pole is SD9508 : Summit of Besom Hill, Grains Bar
