Miller Homes - Parklands View, PR7
Quality of life is about the details of everyday living. From the little things, like knowing the nearest place to pickup a pint of milk to more important matters like finding the right school or having a health centre nearby, you need to know that the community you’re moving to will support you and your family, as well as being a pleasant place to live. So here’s some useful information about the area around Parklands View.
While Parklands View is served by frequent bus services into the town centre, Chorley’s shops and amenities can also be reached by a 25-minute walk alongside the River Chor and Astley Park. Chorley railway station operates services to Blackpool and Manchester, around 45 and 40 minutes away respectively, while Euxton Balshaw Lane station, to the west of the development, offers trains to Liverpool Lime Street. Buses to both stations pass Parklands View. The development is under three miles from junction 8 of the M61, and less than four from junction 28 of the M6.
With its duck pond, Victorian walled garden, play areas and beautiful ancient woodlands, nearby Astley Park is one of Chorley’s most popular attractions. It is also the location of the magnificent Astley Hall museum and art gallery. Chorley cricket and tennis clubs are both close to Parklands View, and there is a choice of golf courses in easy reach.
Comprehensive indoor fitness facilities can befound at the All Seasons Leisure Centre, where there are swimming and teaching pools, a gym, sports hall and squash courts. In addition to the parks, canal walks and sports fields within the town there are some wonderful outdoor amenities just a little further afield including, around three miles away, the reservoirs, cycle paths and way marked trails of the country parks at Rivington and Lever.
There is a convenient Tesco Extra with a pharmacy a short walk away in Foxhole Road, and a small shopping area at Astley Park with a post office and a convenience store. The Tesco car park contains recycling receptacles for glass, textiles and household packaging. Chorley town centre is an attractive and lively area where the shopping environments range from pedestrianised streets lined with independent, traditional traders to modern malls such as Botany Bay, a striking Victorian mill converted into five floors of fashionable shops and restaurants.Chorley’s 500 year old open-air market, held five days a week, is the perfect place to buy fresh local produce.
