Closer to Wigan than Manchester, Atherton is a town that was once thought of as a centre for collieries, cotton mills and iron-works. As those industries have diminished, Atherton has reinvented itself as a retail centre, and is actually the third largest in Wigan. Its bustling lifestyle, strong levels of employment and being home to a number of independent businesses make it a great place to live for both young and old.
There is a small pedestrian shopping centre in Atherton, with most shops around the Market Street area. The area proves popular due to the number of independent retailers it has. Atherton has two semi-professional football teams as well as a cricket club which gives sport lovers something to watch and do.
There are a number of older buildings of historical interest including Alder House, Chowbent Chapel, St John the Baptist’s Church and Chanters Farmhouse. The social club in the area stems from the Atherton Botanical Garden Club.
As a large town, Atherton has a wide range of restaurants, cafes and bars for residents to enjoy. There is everything from takeaways to fine dining on offer, with a lot of oriental and Indian food to enjoy. There are a number of lovely pubs to visit whether it’s for social drinks or a meal, as well as some charming cafés which provide great meeting spots during the day.
