More About the Rivington Area

If only the reeds and birdlife that live along the Upper Rivington reservoir could talk. They would tell you about the warm, attractive summer days and blossoming spring flowers and buds. Digs around the Rivington area have revealed Stone Age flints, knives, and animal bones—remnants of the hundreds of lives that have chosen to call this area of outstanding natural beauty their home.

Rivington has always been a place where people settle down and put down roots. Gardening and vegetable patches, in particular, are popular pastimes, but don’t let this fool you into thinking it’s a little sleepy hollow. The well-kept roads interlink with all the major highways to bustling cities. And some of the best eateries in the county are situated close enough for a comfortable meal or takeaway. There are two popular schools close by, Rivington Foundation Primary School and Rivington and Blackrod High School. Both schools have excellent reputations and places are sought after.

We’d be delighted to help you sell your home in Rivington, or buy if you’re looking to move into the area. As a Bolton based Estate Agent, we are best placed to help with all your property needs.
