Atherton is a small town about 7 miles to the east of Wigan and 5 miles south-west of Bolton. It has a population of approximately 20,000 and has a recorded history that dates back almost 800 years.


Atherton was for many years a major mining and cotton mill town, with both businesses employing a large proportion of the local population. Needless to say, this isnít the case anymore. Modern Atherton is a popular commuter location for people working in Bolton, Wigan and Manchester and benefits from good rail and road links Ė it has its own railway station, is adjacent to the M61 and close to the M6.

The town is large enough to need its own van rental companies. This service is provided by several local branches and further choice is available in nearby Bolton and Wigan. Expect the following types of hire van to be available:

  • Medium / short wheelbase vans - e.g. Ford Transit, Vauxhall Vivaro, Renault Trafic, Volkswagen Transporter
  • Small vans - e.g. Vauxhall Combo, Ford Transit Connect, VW Caddy
  • Large / long wheelbase vans - e.g. Mercedes Sprinter XLWB, Ford Transit LWB, Renault Master, LDV Maxus
  • Luton vans & box vans (3.5 tonne / 3.5t).
