Westhoughton – Earliest records show the hamlet that is today’s Westhoughton was originally called Westhalcton in 1240, and Westhalghton in 1327. Politically this is Bolton West, also known as the pebble dashed voters who often decide the future government. The building above is the Town Hall, formerly of the Urban District Council but now a part of the metropolitan borough. Further down this page is a close up of the window decoration, but this town hall has two foundation stones. It was built in 1903 replacing the Local Board Offices.
This town was brought into the Bolton Borough in 1900, a market town with some local industry. Mining was a principle occupation, and it was a hazardous occupation. On December 21, 1910, at Pretoria Pit in the town, an underground explosion killed 344 people leaving just 3 survivors. Mining was a family occupation, and the disaster was felt very hard.
The town lies about 4 miles south west of Bolton. The M61 Manchester to Preston motorway runs along the northern boundary. Market days are Thursday and Saturday. Various shops line Market Street, early closing day (when some shops close for the day from lunchtime) is Wednesday. A market square provides car parking, a supermarket and a number of other retail outlets, and a Chinese restaurant.
Locally the town is known as “Howfen”, and also known as “Keaw Yed”! The latter of its names is surrounded by folk tales, but the most popular tells of a farmer who, when one of his cows heads became trapped in a gate, beheaded the cow, hence “Cow Head”, or Keaw Yed in local dialect.
Another story suggests that a cows head, left over from an oxroasting celebration after the Napoleonic Wars of 1815, was mounted on a pole, while two opposing factions in the town fought over it.

"Thankyou so much for the care and speed that you gave me for scrapping my car. I'd had her a long time and was sad to see her go, but the guy who removed the car was so professional about it, it was easier than I thought. I would definitely recommend you to anybody in the future." Les & Jackie Eales
