  • Down to earth, no frills and genuine people make up Atherton. The Manchester postcode is a double edged sword, with most locals not wanting it preferring to come under Bolton, bizarrely though Atherton is in Wigan Borough (!) most unpopular with locals I know !

  • I used to live there. Below average income levels, but not rough, no ethnic minorities, ageing population. Perfectly nice and safe, but not posh! Atherton, Leigh and Tyldesley are not run down, but very affordable housing.

  • I would suggest that you look at the local authorities’ website or to see what the crime statistics etc for this area are. You can also look at the local tourist board website which gives you an up to date overview of the area. I would also visit the area and ask some locals.
