Oldham was a county borough in Lancashire, lying to the northeast of Manchester. In 1974, it merged with adjoining areas (primarily from Lancashire but including districts from Yorkshire) to form the Metropolitan Borough of Oldham within new Metropolitan County of Greater Manchester.  Oldham became a unitary authority in 1986, when Greater Manchester lost its administrative status and became purely a ceremonial county.
