Why Move to Littleborough
The Greater Manchester town of Littleborough is well known for being one of the friendliest places to live in the region. However, you won’t just receive a warm welcome here. Located in the upper Roch Valley by the foothills of the South Pennines, you will be living in an area boasting vast vistas of green space.
Although the Pennine countryside is on its doorstep it only takes 22 minutes to get to Manchester by train plus there is easy access to the M62. These are three of the great reasons why this little town is in such great demand right now. Packed with independent businesses, lots for everyone to do, and not a bad school in sight, Littleborough provides a perfect haven for families.
The town has been around for a very long time. Littleborough and its surroundings have provided evidence of Neolithic, Celtic, Roman and Anglo-Saxon activity in the area. Later the town became a centre for the production of textiles. Its location alongside the Rochdale Canal was ideal for the building of water mills which mechanised the whole textile production system.
Littleborough’s stone-built town centre is designated as a Conservation Area for its special and historical architectural qualities. Today Littleborough is considered a commuter town but one with a big heart. The many clubs, social events and societies are testaments to the town’s close-knit community. Hare Hill Park and the local Hollingworth Lake provide lots of space for everyone to enjoy.
The cherry on the top for Littleborough is its property prices. You would imagine that as it offers so much that you would pay a premium to live here. Not so. Over the past 12 months, the average price paid for a home in Littleborough is just £199,288.
Small wonder then, homes sell quickly right across the town.
