Who is John Ousey

I am pleased to report the unveiling of the “John Ousey” marble installation at Ryecroft hall Audenshaw took place on Friday 24th March 2017. Special thanks go to Sue Mitchell your research was invaluable I couldn’t have done this without you. Thanks must also go to Pamela Watkin and all the Management committee volunteers at Ryecroft Hall who have helped us fund this project and make it all possible. Also, the local Councillors for their invaluable input. Plus all our wonderful members, friends family and continued volunteers of our own Audenshaw Local History Society.
