Found this place by mistake few months ago.Visited with host on another Oldham outing.If you plan on doing this site take a mask it smells beyond belief.the place must of been amazing back in the day and the stained glass window just gives it that touch of class.A little history and on with the pictures.... The Hill store ballroom and hill store opened on October 1st 1904 and was designed by Thomas Taylor, the store itself was owned by the Oldham Equitable co-operative Society witch itself was formed by six working men who clubbed together to buy provisions for 15 shilings 75p and then sell at a profit, they rented a property first then later moving to Huddersfield Rd where they built Hillstore, the ballroom was built at the same time and was used right through the war until the 1980's when it became a live band hall...
