Saddleworth Guest House

Oldam Evening Chronicle - 10th December 2006

Football legend Joe Royle really made the moos when he visited Saddleworth to officially open a cowshed.

Joe, former manager of Oldham Athletic, cut the ribbon to open new bed and breakfast,  The Shippon in Grains Road , Delph.

The new venture is the brainchild of Alice Byrom who turned an old, two storey building, next to her country farm home, into a fully functional guest house. 

Joe, who was welcomed by Alice, her family and friends, said: "It's a beautiful place."

Joe  was given a guided tour by Alice (60) a retired local post lady. The former cowshed now houses a breakfast-dining room filled with sofas where guests can relax and enjoy views of the countryside.

Alice said "Joe is a really charming man. He was truly impressed with the place.  I was delighted Joe could take time out to conduct the official opening."
