Turn Of Luck

Picture source: Ian Farrington

The Turn of Luck was situated at 227 West Street (roughly where the end of Fletcher Close is today). It opened in 1830 as the Oddfellows Arms but by 1886 was the Turn of Luck. The original Turn of Luck closed in 1899 when Oldham Brewery transferred the licence to the new Turn of Luck built on the corner of Fletcher Street. The new pub closed in 1969 after being served a Compulsory Purchase Order. It was demolished in 1973 and the site of the former Turn of Luck is now part of the West Street housing
