Hulton Lane Ends, Four Lane Ends
Hulton Lane Ends is locally sometimes called Four Lane Ends, although
originally it was simply known as Lane Ends, but there is a reference to a
hamlet called Four Lane Ends in this area. The A6 and A579
cross, Hulton Park (private) and Atherton lying south of here, north is
Whitegate Brow, east is
junction 4 of the M61, to an area once known as
Middle Hulton, and through to Little Hulton, west
is Chequerbent. The name of Hulton appears to
be derived from the Old English 'hyll' and 'tun' meaning settlement on a hill.
Geoffrey Hulton used to live on the estate until he died in 1992. His
ancestor William Hulton assisted in the building of the Bolton to Leigh
railway with George Stephenson.

This long established take away is just south of the junction down Newbrook
Road and is well worth a visit. Besides kebabs and fish and chips, there is a
selection of pizzas.
