Manchester West - Atherton Guide

As north England's capital city, a trip to the United Kingdom would not be complete without spending some time in the historic and cultural hub of Manchester. Due to its popularity, great shopping and unparalleled music scene, accommodation in the city centre can be poor value for money, so many visitors choose to stay on the city's outskirts in Atherton.

If you do choose this option while visiting the city, the best way to get around is by car hire in Manchester West - Atherton. There are a number of historic buildings worth visiting in the town, including the 17th century Alder House, the Chanters Farmhouse, Chowbent Chapel and St John's Church. There are also some less-impressive structure which once housed the multitude of coal mine workers in the area.

Also a good place to visit with cheap car hire in Manchester West - Atherton, is the model village at Howe Bridge. This was built in the late 1800s by a mine owner, and forms a tiny representation of the shops, cottages and mills that once made up Atherton.

If you want to visit the real thing, however, take your car rental at Manchester West - Atherton to the Ena Mill. This spinning mill is one of the few in Lancashire that still stands with its huge chimney intact. It offers an interesting insight into the workings of the former textiles industry.

If you are more interested in experiencing the striking nature in this part of the world, however, take you hire car on a tour of Atherton's seven brooks. These comprise of Shakerley Brook, Chanters Brook, Knight's Brook, Colliers Brook, Westhoughton Brook, Small Brook and Red Waters Brook.
