Crompton..........I lived around that area in my youth and never heard it or ever called it Crompton, a little inventive journalism by the BN.

Crompton is a legitimate Ward in Bolton - have been on line and there is a Census for 2001 - although I agree it is not often we hear of it.

Cheers oftbewildered2, I was aware that the ward is now called Crompton, certainly wasn't in my days of living around there,

It mentioned Prospect Street, well the area around the junction of Halliwell & Blackburn Road was known as Waterloo, after the pub that stood there, some years ago now.
