Schools, Shopping and Transport

Well served for primary schools, with Claypool, Chorley New Road, St Catherines, St Mary’s, Lord Street and Horwich Parish in the town itself, secondary education is provided by Rivington & Blackrod and St Joseph’s high schools with school bus services to Bolton School. For shopping, residents of the town are spoilt for choice, with the shops and market of Horwich town centre competing with the Middlebrook Retail Park and its selection of supermarkets and big name brand outlets.

Finally, with arguably the most convenient road and rail connections in the area, travelling to work or indeed anywhere else couldn’t be simpler, as long as you can put up with the traffic at rush hour!
