Darcy Lever

Lying centrally between Breightmet in the north, Moses Gate to the south west, and Little Lever in the south east, this is the point where the River Tonge meets the River Croal below Leverhulme Park.

Betweek Darcy Lever and Breightmet are some sports fields, and a number of local sports clubs use them. One such is the Bolton Country Bears Football Club, http://www.bcbfc.co.uk/ [street and bridge]
