The Wigan Directory of 1881, Hindley, Hindley Green, Platt Bridge & Low Green

Hindley, a township and parish, has a station on the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway, three miles from Wigan and seven from Bolton. It is in the deanery of Warrington, the archdeaconry of Liverpool, and the diocese of Chester, and south-west division of the county. It was formerly a single street, forming the road from Bolton to Wigan, but within the last twenty years the population has increased very considerably, and new streets been opened out which gives it the appearance of a flourishing town. It is stated that only four churches were consecrated in South Lancashire from 1660 to 1717, one of these being at Hindley. The present edifice (All Saints), however, dates from 1766, and there is a new church dedicated to St. Peter, erected in 1864. The registers date from 1689. The living is in the gift of the rector of Wigan. There are various congregations of Nonconformists, several of which have schools in connection. Hindley and Abram Grammar School was re-constructed by the Endowed Schools Commissioner in 1881, and has accommodation for sixty boys, of whom five per cent. are free scholars. Subjects of instruction:- Reading, writing, and arithmetic; geography and history; English grammar, composition and literature; mathematics; Latin, and at least one foreign European language; natural science; srawing; drill and vocal music. Fees, £4 a year. The cemetery is situated on Castle Hill road, and was opened on the 21st June, 1880. The Church of England portion was consecrated by the Vicar of Kirby, on the 30th December, 1879. There are charities to the value of £85 distributed annually. There is a successful co-operative store, connected with which is a newsroom and library, and a commodious hall, used for public meetings, lectures, &c. There are several cotton mills and many collieries in the district. The Earl of Ellesmere, Sir Humphrey de Trafford, Roger Leigh, Esq., Messrs. Hargreaves, and J. Walmsley, Esq., are the chief landowners. The area is 2611 acres; the population in 1861 was 8,477; 1871, 10,627; and in 1881, 14,667.
