About Glazebury

Within the boundaries of the historic county of Lancashire, Leigh was originally the centre of a large ecclesiastical parish covering six vills or townships.

Historically part of Lancashire, the area was dense woodland until the Norman conquest, hence the village gets its name from the Celtic for “narrow wood”.

The village name is unusual as the ending “bury” in English place names usually signifies a fortified place. However Hurst became known as Glazebury in a different way. In the 17th century Civil War combatants were buried in a road which became known as Bury Lane (now part of Warrington Road) and Glazebury is believed to take its name from a combination of bury and the word glaze from the nearby Glaze Brook.

The village has a parish church, primary school and cricket club amongst other facilities, along with it being the home of Bents Garden Centre.

Glazebury has more pubs than shops. There are a number of walks around the village to Windy Bank Wood and Crow Wood.
