You need to narrow it down a tad fellaPosted 9 years ago
There’s some nice houses towards the top of Rooley Moor (Once you’ve gone past the Council estate at the bottom of the road!)
There’s a few for sale round where we are, ranging from £100K for a 3 bed semi to £300K for 5 Bed Detached.
There’s Mountain Ash, Stonehill Drive and Elm Park. With Lane Head Hamlet at the top of the top (not sure if any are for sale at Lane Head at the moment) or off the Caldershaw Estate (nearer Norden).
The Elm Park properties were built in the late 60’s and really are a good size for what you pay.Posted 9 years ago
Hora – Uppermill is hardly between the two…..? but, move to the correct end of the village and its a 10 min walk to Greenfield station. Also then, consider Greenfield but the station position is such that, unless you get a place on Shaw Hall Bank Road, its 10 mins or more to the stationPosted 9 years ago
Another left-fielder – you wont get much more rural than Marsden …. there’s a railway station in the village, property cheaper than the Uppermill side of the hill….. nothing like what i’d say was between Tod and M’cr though…
Sorry Hora, lost me with that one – are you saying Marsden is not ideal – tis rural and comes with its own railway station (MrsMM commutes to Bolton every day by train, we’re a 5 min walk from the station, there’s plenty of property closer to the station than us…), it even has lovely coffee shops to keep MsHora amused whilst you are out on the bike 🙂
Or is it that its too far out in terms of the M’cr / Todd thing?
Note – we’re not desparate for friends 🙂 its just this really is a great place to live!
Mossley is on the same train line, next station in towards M’cr after Greenfield, fringes of the villages are rural but those are the bits farthest from the station. After that you are into the M’cr conurbation….
Newhey and Milnrow are more what i would say were between Todd and M’cr (based on route I would drive there).Posted 9 years ago
Both have train stations running to M’cr, and both are right on a junction for the M62 if you need it, Todd is in easy reach, only issue is rural bits are on the fringes so not exactly next door to the railway stations……fubarMember
Well you came to Smithy Bridge to pick up a Kona off me…no good ? That is the 1st stop out of manchester on that train-line that I’d live in (without driving).
TBH Littleborough is much better (I’ve moved here now) …just one more stop; It has enough shops / take-aways etc…25 / 30 minutes to manchester by train and good riding on your doorstep.
Next stop is Walsden…think more trains miss out Walsden during the day and also as it is outside manchester the train is a lot more expensive.
Next stop Tod….
On the other line (oldham loop) be aware that, as I understand, it will be shut whilst they make it a tram line….though it could be a great benefit once it’s done.Posted 9 years ago

Next door you say?…. MY SO was looking for sympathetic neighbours for her evening drum kit and metal tribute band tune ups and I could practice my carpentry hobbie at peace knowing we have nice neighbours…

In that case, forget what I said earlier about Rooley Moor! 😀Posted 9 years ago
