BL5

BL5 is a district within Bolton which covers three residential areas – Westhoughton, Daisy Hill and Over Hulton.

This is a popular area because of its closeness to Bolton town centre and the easy access to the motorway and transport links into Manchester.

Cardwells have been successful since 1982 in selling residential properties and also managing properties which house tenants.

Westhoughton

Westhoughton is a popular town which is part of the Metropolitan Borough of Bolton and sits between Bolton and Wigan. At one time a thriving industrial centre boasting coal mining, textile manufacture and cotton spinning, it is now mainly a residential area with a lively nightlife and many public amenities including a train station and swimming pool.

For buyers or tenants looking for a varied and fun nightlife, Westhoughton offers popular bars and pubs for socialising, music and sport, these include The Robert Shaw (named after Westhoughton’s own famous acting son, star of “A Man for all Seasons”) and the Rose and Crown.

For those people who are looking to stay fit and/or engage in many different classes such as jiu jitsu, swimming, workout classes and many more, then we recommend that you spend some time at Westhoughton Leisure Centre.

Daisy Hill is a popular town village that forms part of the larger town of Westhoughton which is part of the Metropolitan Borough of Bolton and sits between Bolton and Wigan. It’s a popular residential area a stone’s throw from the lively nightlife and many public amenities offered both locally and in Westhoughton including a train station and swimming pool.

Over Hulton

Over Hulton (BL5) is a suburb of Westhoughton and within the Metropolitan Borough of Bolton, 3.5 miles from the town centre. The ancient district of Hulton contained three townships, Over Hulton, Middle Hulton and Little Hulton, it was originally spelt as ‘Helghtun’ and then ‘Hulton’ past the 17th century. The chief manor was held by the Hultons at Hulton Park which is still situated here to this day.

Close to the train station of both Atherton and Bolton with great commuter links and its proximity to the M61 network and beyond has made Over Hulton a popular residential choice.
