Wallsuches and Bottom o'th'Moor
Between Montserrat and Horwich is Wallsuches, and it is thought that the name
is derived from 'wella', the Old English for water, and 'soc', Old English for
soak. It was here that the Ridgeway family moved their bleaching croft, from
the centre of Bolton, to a site by the stream called Pearl Brook in the late
18th century. Bottom o'th'Moor is just above Wallsuches.
