Lying on the northern edge of Bolton and incorporating the former hamlet of Dunscar, Egerton takes its name from Sir Thomas Egerton, a prominent landowner and baronet and was first truly developed in the 1830s as the Ashworth family set up cotton mills in the area. With a real village feel, old world charm sits alongside modern developments and a range of local facilities creating a much sought after location just 3 miles from the centre of town.
