Just Moved Here

Hi everyone! I've just moved to Accrington and very much liking it. Im currently lviing in rented accomodation but hoping to buy my own place very soon.

I've seen a lovely terraced house on Whalley Road up by the hospital- seems a decent error and close to town. Is there anything I should know about the area before I commit? Positive or Negative .

Thanks for the help!

Re: Just Moved Here

Al the houses on Whalley Rd were high quality when built. Some were built by Hannibal Ramsbottom, after whom Ramsbottom St is named. I no longer live in Acc, but would have thought it an OK area except for traffic by the front door.

Re: Just Moved Here

On the positive side, it's a nice part of town with easy access to town centre and on a bus route so the gritter does tend to go up and down the road in winter. Whether or not it chucks out any grit depends on how much the council has left! On the negative side it is a flippin busy road and trying to cross it at times you takes yer life in yer 'ands! I used to live on Ramsbottom Street with my parents which is a nice quiet little side road just down from the hospital. We liked it very much.

Re: Just Moved Here

I moved to Accrington in 1977 when I married an Accrington lad .At tat time ir had a thriving market , and a very busy town centre. Now 36 yrs on I see a weary newish market and a town centre of charity / cheap shops.The people are very friendly .But sadly like many towns , gone down hill.
