Just 30 minutes’ drive from Manchester City Centre, Middleton is the perfect town for keen property investors. With the appearance of a traditional Lancashire industrial town, Middleton is cosy, quaint and steeped in history. There is an interesting array of architecture, apparent in lots of buildings, from schools and churches, to shops and homes. The Norman church, St Leonard’s, is one of only three in the UK with a wooden tower. And for nature lovers, there is Jubilee Park with its 11 acres of conservation area in the heart of the town.

The area has recently benefited from an injection of cash, and boasts several new bars and cafes. A regular market town, Middleton is popular with both families and those who want to live near Manchester but in a quieter location. Transport links to central Manchester are good, with bus services and a train line, and it is close to junctions on the M60 and M62. Certainly a location to consider for investment property.
