Originally an agricultural area noted for dairy farming, domestic spinning and weaving led to a considerable silk and, in the 20th century, cotton industry. Leigh (population 39636) also exploited the underlying coal measures particularly after the town was connected to the canal and railways. Leigh also had an important engineering base. The legacy of Leigh’s industrial past can be seen in the remaining red brick mills – some of which are listed buildings – although it is now a mainly residential town, with Edwardian and Victorian terraced housing packed around the town center. Leigh’s present-day economy is based largely on the retail sector
“I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone. All your staff are extremely pleasant, helpful and willing and I look forward to their weekly visits”. – Miss Eaton, Leigh
“It should be acknowledged that with a young family, we may not be the tidiest group to clean for! Therefore, it was refreshing to have a cleaning company that got stuck in, did a blitz clean to get us up to a high standard of cleanliness and then kept on top of it every week. Such a joy to have this task taken away from me by Houseproud Cleaners.”. – Mrs R Tattersall, Leigh.
