Schools, Shopping and Transport

With its own nursery and primary school, Lostock also has easy access to a number of secondary schools including Bolton School , Thornleigh, St James and Smithills either by car or by bus. Whilst there are few opportunities in Lostock itself for shopping, both Bolton and Middlebrook are only a short drive away and of course you can avoid the big supermarket shop altogether and go online! Lostock’s transport links are second to none, with easy local access and its own mainline station to Manchester and the airport, alongside nearby junctions 5 and 6 of the M61, travelling around the region is simple – but of course subject to traffic and leaves on the line!
