Breightmet is a beautiful area of Bolton which was formerly known as Bright Meadow. In the 80’s & 90’s Breightmet had a fierce reputation for being rough & tough. Those days are long gone with no go zones such as Great Lever or the nearby inbred village of Little Lever taking the lead. Breightmet is a sprawling area which officially begins at the traffic lights on Bury Rd/junction with Crompton Way and stretching up the hill to Newby Rd encompassing Bolton St Catherine’s Academy (formerly Withins School, God bless Mr Makin) right over to the affluent Somerton Rd estate on the border with Bury.

Breightmet has always had many shops for e.g Breightmet Electrics, Ace Video Club, Ashe & Nephew, Safeway’s, Breightmet Wine Shop, Dots Chippy & R Peers - Ironmongers to name but a few.

Modern day Breightmet brings investment from Morrison’s, Home Bargains, Iceland, Aldi & Greehalghs.

Breightmet is home to the legend Mr Malcolm Pittock, Anti War Campaigner & all round decent man who has for decades ran up and down Bury Rd wearing a crash helmet. Salute Sir.

Breightmet is also known as B.met B/met

Please note Breightmet is not to be confused with Top O’th Brow (AKA T.O.B)
