Atherton has been associated with coal mining and nail manufacture since the 14th century due to the abundance of coal which was located within the close proximity. During the last century, the town was famous for its collieries, cotton mills and ironworks, 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, as well as the more modern builds being located off North Road. Newbrook Road and the surrounding residential areas have a reputation for more ‘high-end’ expensive properties.
Atherton has a wealth of local shops, schools and transport links situated in and around the local area. There are many good schools and handy public facilities. Some of the more popular primary schools in the area are St Philips Church Of England, Parklee Community Primary and Chowbent Primary School. Fred Longworth and Atherton Community School are the main high schools in Atherton.
