Horwich is a busy and bustling town centre, it’s located close to the University of Bolton stadium, home to Bolton Wanderers and to Middlebrook Retail and Leisure Park. It has a population of over 20,000 residents but is a pleasant and attractive town, with a character and identity appreciated by those who live there.
Horwich has almost everything that could be expected in a town centre of its size with a wide range of independent and national food retailers including restaurants, bars and cafes. There are also lots of public spaces including a public hall, a park, leisure centre, library & children’s centre, community and heritage centre, health clinic and schools.
Despite its popularity, Horwich like other district centres still faces challenges and would benefit from improvements to its assets including its green spaces and parks, community and housing and making the most of its connectivity and improving the public realm.
