Why take the train to Blackrod?
Once a centre for coal mining, Blackrod lies just over six miles west of Bolton. There are still lots of traditional stone cottages and farms in and around the area, as well as a pretty Norman parish church – so taking a train to Blackrod and wandering round the village is a lovely way to spend a sunny Saturday afternoon.
