Why Move to Chorley?
Known for its delicious Chorley Cakes, the Lancashire town of Chorley has become one of the most popular places to live in the Northwest. Situated right on the M61, M6, and M65 motorways, easy access to the West Coast mainline, and airports at Manchester and Liverpool Chorley makes the perfect city gateway location.
Steeped in history, like most towns in the north, Chorley prospered during the Industrial Revolution which was also responsible for its speedy growth. Remnants of its industrial heyday include Morrison’s chimney and a few other mill buildings, and the streets lined with little terraced houses built for mill workers.
At Chorley’s centre, there are a variety of independent shops and well-known national stores with a Booths supermarket, and an Asda and Morrisons, all you need for daily necessities. Established for hundreds of years, Chorley’s Tuesday Flat Iron Market is the real hub of the town where locals meet and socialise.
The borough sits in a region of great beauty. The West Pennine Moors provide a multitude of outdoor-based activities whilst the Rivington Pike offers breath-taking views. Running next to Chorley are the Leeds and Liverpool canals, so there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy water-based activities.
Locals have much to look forward to with a recently agreed £16m package of investment in the town centre, set to improve and enhance the attraction of Chorley. A huge amount of work is taking place designed to attract both new residents and bolster tourism. New jobs will be created as a result, all good news for Chorley’s future economy.
Chorley Schools & Education
Chorley has numerous primary schools, both council and church-supported plus five high schools, with Runshaw College being the local further education facility.
Within a mile of the town centre there are eight state primaries.
Of these, Ofsted rated six as being “good”. St George’s Church of England Primary and Gillibrand Primary School both received the highest accolade of “outstanding”.
Older children attend one of six secondaries with Balshaw’s Church of England High School having been awarded the highly rated Ofsted standard of “outstanding”.
Runshaw College, 4 miles from Chorley town centre, has had some great results recently. Its 2021 results were impressive with high grade passes being achieved across the board.
Although there is a good choice of colleges in the region, Lancashire College of Further Education is one of the most successful Further Education institutes in the UK and commands outstanding results. Offering a wide range of courses, its speciality is its intensive residential language program.
