During the last century the town was famous for its collieries, cotton mills and iron works, Atherton’s last coal mine closed in 1966, and the last working cotton mills closed in 1999. Due to the significance of Atherton during the industrial revolution, houses were built to accommodate the manual workers. Many of the brick built terrace houses still remain and provide good solid homes. Newbrook Road and the surrounding residential areas have a reputation for more ‘high end’ expensive properties.
