Schools, Shopping and Transport

A short drive from the M61 and the rest of the North’s motorway network, Rivington is just minutes away from Horwich, with its busy shopping and weekly market and Middlebrook Retail Park for the more committed shopper, while Chorley is  only 15 minutes away. Railway stations at Blackrod and Horwich Parkway offer regular services for rail commuters and bus services run from Horwich and nearby Addlington to Bolton, Chorley and Preston. With Rivington Foundation Primary School in the village centre, Rivington and Blackrod High School on the southern edge, good road links give easy access to other schools in the area – although the school-run rush hour can be a little challenging at times.
