A Bolton estate agent said it is ‘impossible’ to pick the most popular areas of the borough to live in because there are so ‘many wonderful parts’.

The Bolton News asked Andrew Cardwell, Managing Director of Cardwells Estate Agents, which areas of the borough he thinks are the most popular areas to live in – but Andrew said he couldn’t possibly choose because each area has its own unique appeal.

He said: “There are so many wonderful parts of Bolton that it is impossible to pick out five that are the most popular.

The Bolton News: Jumbles

“Each of the beautiful areas within Bolton have so much to offer, that it is no wonder that all of the areas are so appealing.

“The most attractive element of all areas is the vibrant and welcoming communities who currently live here.

“Often people choose to live near family members, or near community links, and Bolton is lucky to have a wide range of community groups within our town, that people can choose to be near.

“Sometimes people are attracted to an area for its green space and countryside, in those cases BL7 which includes Egerton, Bromley Cross and Chapeltown prove to be popular as the West Pennine Moors, Jumbles and Wayoh reservoir are all nearby.

“Sometimes transport links can be a key factor, and for those commuting by road or motorway, Farnworth, Westhoughton and Horwich are always popular as they provide easy access to the M61 and the wider motorway network.

The Bolton News: Bolton School

“For those who wish to be near particular schools; Heaton and Lostock are often popular for those wanting to be near Bolton School and Clevelands, while other popular schools such as Rivington, Turton, Sharples, Smithills, Canon Slade and Eden Boys Schools can all help attract families to an individual area.

Andrew said it isn’t just the areas that all have their unique charm but also the mix of properties available.

He said: “The great thing about Bolton is that there is an eclectic mix of properties across a wide price range with something suitable for any budget.

“All the areas within Bolton have so much to offer that it is no wonder that Bolton as a whole remains so popular, not just with people moving within our town but also attracting people to live in Bolton from further afield.”
