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. [road junction and pub]

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.
