Persimmon Homes


The local motto ‘Choose Chorley’ says it all! And there are so many reasons to make this thriving market town - with a rich industrial heritage - your new home. Chorley sits at the base of the West Pennine Moors and is overlooked by Healey Nab an area of natural beauty with woodlands, moors and nature reserves popular with hikers and bikers alike. The town has many ancient and historic buildings, the picturesque Leeds & Liverpool Canal, as well as a busy market that has been in operation since 1498!

Your new home in Chorley has a town centre packed with high street and independent shops, great cafes, bars and restaurants as well as a theatre, cinema and bowling. There are lots of performances and events throughout the year including the Chorley Grand Prix, Chorley Literary Festival and A Taste of Chorley – the amazing food and drink festival. The schools are excellent, there's a mainline railway station and the roads are convenient too with the M61 skimming the town to the East and the M6 to the West. 

Living in Chorley

A great place to call home

There are so many reasons to buy a Chorley new build. Chorley’s town centre offers so much more than the indoor and outdoor markets and national supermarkets. Your new home is close to high-street shops alongside independent local stores, and Market Walk has been extended to include a six-screen cinema, ten-pin bowling, adventure golf and plenty of places to eat out. On the edge of town, your new home Chorley has Astley Park with lush woodland, a lake, a stately home and a walled garden to explore. Or for the cyclists, scale the heights of Rivington Pike - a favourite climb of the Tour of Britain bike race.

Spoilt for choice with schools and sports

If you like to keep fit, there’s a Badminton Club, a Cricket Club, a Bowling Green, an Athletic and Triathlon Club as well as local teams Chorley Football Club and the Chorley Panthers Rugby Team. If you’d prefer more of an indoor fitness experience, from your new build, head to the All Seasons Leisure Centre or David Lloyd Chorley.

Your new build home in Chorley has a choice of 18 primary schools, five secondary schools, two SEN schools and a whopping six independent schools.
