Path, Moses Gate Country Park
Path, Moses Gate Country Park
Moses Gate Country Park (also known as Crompton Lodges) is situated at Moses Gate in the Croal Irwell Valley, south of Bolton, on the A6053 which connects Farnworth to Little Lever. The park, which occupies a site of approx 750 acres, runs from Hall Lane to Nob End along the banks of the River Croal.

The name “Moses Gate” is not a personal name, but a corruption of the word 'mosses' meaning peaty or marshy lands, and gate from the Old English 'gata' meaning a way across, so we have the way though the mosses (Kearsley Moss, Clifton Moss, Linnyshaw Moss etc).

The park lies on the Kingfisher Way which runs for 7 miles from Clifton Country Park to Jumbles Reservoir, north of Bolton.
