One of the few older buildings left standing at the western end of Old Street is The Witchwood. The age and original name of this pub are uncertain, but in 1850 it was given the name the "Painters Arms". 36 years later it became the "Rifle Brigade" but after 7 years the name was changed back to the "Painters Arms".
Four years later, in 1897, the name changed again, this time to The Globe Hotel, a name which stuck for 87 years. In 1985 it was renamed the "Gamecock" but just three years later it took on its current name, the "Witchwood".
In the past the pub has belonged to Oldham Breweries and Boddingtons but it now sells various real ales.
The "Witchwood" is now a popular music venue catering for a range of musical tastes. It also provides a chance for new local bands to show off their talents.
In the background can be seen Good Hope Mill.
