Radcliffe is a residential town which forms part of the Metropolitan Borough of Bury and which sits nestled between Bury, Bolton, and Whitefield. The town has been settled for a significant amount of time as there is evidence of Mesolithic Norman and Roman activity in the area. Known previously as “Redeclive” the town appears in the Doomsday Book and was at one time centred on the Church of St Mary which is now a Grade I listed building. Cardwells have been letting houses in Radcliffe since 1982, making us most suited to let houses to you, throughout the Bolton and Bury area.
About Radcliffe, Bury
Being a comparatively new town, Radcliffe’s homes are mostly, if not all, dating early 1900s or thereafter, making it a lot more updated than surrounding towns. Typically for a mill town, the grid-iron streets are prominent when travelling around Radcliffe, but beyond these zones you will find a variety of modern, some ’70’s, some 90’s and some more recent developments, where the town has evolved to pander to wealthier residents and keep up with neighbouring areas, particularly Whitefield and Bury.
There are a total of 9 primary schools in Radcliffe. The most notable three being Radcliffe Primary, St Mary’s RC Primary and Gorsefield Primary. Radcliffe relies heavily on surrounding areas for secondary education, however. There are several reputable high schools in neighbouring Bury, Whitefield, Little Lever and Bolton, such as Derby High School Bury, Bury High School, Elms Bank High School Whitefield, and Little Lever Secondary School.
Radcliffe also has excellent transport links throughout Greater Manchester. Many commuters choose to use Radcliffe metrolink station, less than a 10-minute drive from most of Radcliffe, to commute into Manchester City Centre whilst Bury and Whitefield metrolink stations are within about 5 miles, providing alternative routes. The nearby M60 ring road provides access to the wider areas of Manchester, and the motorway network beyond. Main roads take you directly to Whitefield, Bury and Bolton, while Bury Old Road via Whitefield and Prestwich leads into Manchester too.
Being a town in its own right, the residents of Radcliffe benefit from a good array of leisure facilities and communal amenities. Radcliffe has its own leisure centre, with swimming facilities and gym, and a town centre with a wide array of retailers, both chain stores and independent stores. There are large supermarkets, popular restaurants and pubs, such as The Sparking Clog on Radcliffe Moor Road, and the redeveloped canal side is a lovely place to walk.
Radcliffe Borough Football Club is the sport focal point in the town, playing at the Belvoir Stadium, just off Pilkington Road. Radcliffe Cricket Club is just down the road, along with Radcliffe Junior FC. Radcliffe Borough FC also has sports facilities for public use, such as 6-a-side pitches.
