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!
