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.
