About Holcombe Bury
One of Bury’s villages, Holcombe is located on the hillside of Holcombe Moor, less than half mile west of Ramsbottom and less than 5 miles north of Bury town centre. Holcombe Brook, located at the junction between Bolton Road, Bolton Road West and Longsight Road is an associated village and they share a number of amenities as well as the BL9 postcode.
Holcombe and Holcombe Brook boast a fantastic range of properties. At the top of Holcombe Village the prospective buyer will generally find red brick terraces similar to those found in Ramsbottom, but the descent from the hill into Holcombe Brook shows a change in demographic from the traditional 1900’s terraced homes to period bay fronted semi detached properties lining the wide roads towards Bury. Off the main roads, ‘60’s and ‘70’s semi and detached houses are found, grouped around pockets of cottages reminiscent of times gone by.
The areas are served by primary schools including Holcombe Brook Primary School, Tottington Primary School and Hazlehurst Community Primary School. As Holcombe and Holcombe Brook are only small villages, there is no immediate high school or college, with most 11-16 year olds commuting into Bury for the grammar school or to Tottington High School and Woodhey High School at Ramsbottom.
Travelling to Bury and the surrounding areas from Holcombe is easy. Main roads bring the commuter directly to Bury, whilst a short drive through Ramsbottom will bring you to the M66 from which Lancashire (to the north) and the Manchester Ring Road and M62 (to the south) are very easily accessible. There is also a main road that will bring you to north eastern Bolton and provide alternative routes into Bury.
Within Holcombe and Holcombe Brook there are several amenities such as the ‘Co-op’ and an independent bakery on the small parade in Holcombe Brook. The majority of attractions to the area are within Ramsbottom town which is less than one mile away including a number of small retailers, two supermarket chains and a wide range of pubs and bars.
