Why Lancasters love Adlington… Adlington is a lovely village positioned between Chorley and Horwich. Traditionally the village was split into two parts- ‘upper & lower’, though they basically benefit from the same features and it takes just a matter of minutes to travel between the two. Whilst three would have been a time when you would have either been ‘one or t’other’ the areas are now nicely merged and include a selection of retail shops and services with many more available in Chorley itself or the nearby town of Horwich.The village suits many styles of buyer and there is a wide selection of property type. A feature that underpins the village, like many of its surrounding residential areas is the superb access to the surrounding countryside. The village hosts a stretch of the Leeds – Liverpool canal and has good links towards the West Pennine Moors and Winter Hill. Motorway and Rail links are good and there are two primary schools in the village itself. The creature comforts of pubs and restaurants are dotted around and it is not uncommon that locals would commute towards Manchester and the Trafford Centre or further into the countryside to socialise. ...

North Bolton

Why Lancasters love North Bolton… The area of North Bolton encompasses Bromley Cross, Egerton, Edgworth, Turton, Chapel Town and Belmont. These smaller villages within this region are all different and all have something unique to offer.  For example, Bromley Cross, the larger of these, has several shops, pubs, local eateries, a couple of primary schools and also has its own railway station with trains into Bolton and Manchester and all it has to offer.  Chapeltown has the oldest registered football pitch in the country (and therefore the world!).  Edgworth has an ice cream shop dating back to the 1930’s (well worth a visit!), and Egerton was the birthplace of Bolton Wanderers F.C., which started there as Christ Church F.C. in 1874. The region of North Bolton is on the edge of the West Pennine Moors, Anglezarke Moors and Turton Moors surrounding the town and is a fabulous location for those who enjoy the outdoor life with plenty of walking, cycling and running space on offer. For keen sailors Bolton Sailing Club, one of the longest established Sailing Clubs in the North West, has its home on Belmont Reservoir.  This is a semi-rural part of Bolton and each village has a pub (or two!) with good food on offer for after those long country walks with (or without) your dog around Entwistle and Wayoh reservoirs or the moors.  There are primary and secondary schools, including Turton High School and Canon Slade C of E School, as well as several churches, restaurants, and small local convenience shops and post offices. North Bolton is only short drive from Bolton town centre but areas such as Preston and Blackburn are also accessible in the opposite direction. With so much on offer here what’s not to love! ...

Haigh & Aspull

Why Lancasters love Haigh & Aspull… A small village on the outskirts of Wigan, which gives a semi-rural feel, as it fringes Blackrod and Aspull. St. David Haigh and Aspull School holds a good Ofsted report, located on Copperas Lane, which is set within Haigh Country Park. Haigh Country Park is famous in Wigan and further afield for its impressive grounds and woodlands. The extensive plantations cover forty miles of pathways, which is ideal for dog walkers.  The grounds lead to various hotspots in the Wigan area, such as; Wigan Lane, Whelley and Aspull. Within the grounds there are two championship-standard golf courses with first-class facilities.  It is ideal for youngsters too, with a newly refurbished play area and courtyard selling arts and crafts and a cafe serving hot and cold refreshments. Haigh Hall itself dates back to 1827, and is currently owned by Metropolitan Borough of Wigan. A variety of events take place at the hall, such as; arts & craft fairs, vintage fairs, organised tours and weddings to name but a few. Based between Wigan town centre, Blackrod and Westhoughton, Aspull boasts; good primary schools, canal walks, pubs, restaurants, cafes and convenience stores, such as; butchers, bakers, hairdressers, chemist and a dry cleaners. The small town has a rugby union and football clubs plus village green where numerous after school activities take place. This is a village with its own identity and community spirit- don’t miss the  annual ‘worm charming’ event which takes place during the summer months, organised by the Parish Hall. An ideal area for those needing to live between Bolton and Wigan  and requiring excellent access to junction 6 of the M61....

Why Lancasters love Horwich… We think this review from a travel website sums our home town up perfectly: ‘Horwich is a very pleasant, scenic area with friendly people and a friendly atmosphere’. A small and vibrant town centre hosts many independently owned shops and services and combines well with the large retail and leisure complex at The Middlebrook close to the Bolton Wanderers football stadium. The transport infrastructure is superb having several points of access to mainline train stations running towards Manchester and the junction into the M61 means that the ‘worlds your oyster’. Outside of main commuter times Manchester city centre can be reached in around half an hour whilst the stunning south Lake District will be around one hour. One of the highlights of Horwich and a feature that consistently attracts people to settle in the town is the impressive surrounding countryside. With Rivington Pike as its icon the area includes Winter Hill and the West Pennine Moors Country Park. For those who love the outdoors be it for walking your dog, cycling or simply ambling around then you can’t fail to love this very special aspect of the area. On a clear day from ‘The Pike’ itself you can see the Fylde coast with the outline of Blackpool tower and a glance further south will show of the distant Snowdon range in North Wales. If your hill walking days are behind you however there is equally impressive and level surroundings in Rivington Village with a number of reservoirs whilst the nearby village of Adlington plays host to a stretch of the Leeds Liverpool canal. Growing families have the choice of several private day nurseries and there is a healthy supply of Primary schools whilst the town is covered by two main Secondary Schools. Bolton Independent School which covers nursery through to A level stage is around five miles away. We feel that the package on offer within Horwich is very family friendly and therefore many people settle in the town for a lengthy stay. ...
