New Boundary Signs For Horwich

Look out for the newly renovated and repainted pictorial boundary signs that have just been installed on roadsides leading into Horwich.

The new design features a representation of the iconic 1008 locomotive built at Horwich Loco Works and also highlights the prominent local landmark Rivington Pike while retaining the town crest and two red Lancashire roses.

Welcome to Horwich

The signs are at the following locations: Chorley Old Road opposite the Blundell Arms, Chorley New Road opposite the Golf Club, Crown Lane near the motorway bridge, Mansell Way and Scholes Bank. A new sign has also been erected on Lever Park Avenue.

It is hoped that the new signs give a warm welcome to everybody coming into Horwich and that Horwich residents are justifiably proud of their town’s unique railway heritage.

The new signage is also featured on the cover of the new official Horwich Town Guide which is due out within the next few weeks.
