About Greenmount Bury
One of the best regarded areas in Bury and among the most desirable is the village of Greenmount, part of Tottington and collectively part of Bury. Manchester City Centre is 13 miles to the south, and Bury town centre is only 4 miles also to the south and has the postcode prefix BL8.
The area today has all the things that you would expect of a village, along with a range of property types and styles. Much of the first settlement of Greenmount was in cottages gathered round the existing main roads that we know today as Holcombe Road and Brandlesholme Road. Through the early to mid 20th Century rose the period semis that are more common in the area, but due to low population density the houses were built larger and in larger plots, creating homes that today are more desirable and spacious than many of the typical semi detached properties.
There are two principal primary schools, namely Greenmount Primary School and Holly Mount RC Primary School, and children also have access to primary schools in neighbouring villages and areas such as Holcombe and Holcombe Brook Primary Schools and Tottington Primary. For high schools the majority of 11 16 year olds attend Tottington High School.
To get around, two main roads lead into Bury and surrounding areas, namely Brandlesholme Road and Holcombe Road, however routes through Ramsbottom and Summerseat provide access to the M66 and Bolton is also an approximated 5 mile drive away. The M66 runs north/south, providing access to some parts of Lancashire and also to the Manchester ring road and M62. There are no rail or tram connections directly to the area but a 3-4 mile drive into Bury provides access to the Metrolink network running through the majority of Greater Manchester.
