Leisure and Outdoors

Although it can seem a little too urban at times, the West Pennine Moors are only a stone’s throw away from Astley Bridge and offer amazing walking and cycling routes. Equally, for the more seasoned walkers among you, a relatively easy trek across the valley can lead you to the Jumbles Country Park. Astley Bridge Cricket Club is a favourite with many locals and both Barlow Park and nearby Moss Bank Park offer great family fun, when the sun is shining.

There are of course numerous pubs, cafes and restaurants in the area to suit all tastes, including the big names at the Valley complex with its multiplex cinema and Nuffields Gym.
