Tyldesley (population 13234) means “Tilwald’s clearing”, and is derived from the Old English personal name Tilwald (or Tīlwald) and leăh meaning “wood, clearing”, suggesting that what is now open land was once covered with forest. The name was recorded as Tildesleiha in about 1210
The factory system, and textile manufacture during the Industrial Revolution, triggered a process of population growth in Tyldesley, such that by the early 20th century it was said that the newly emerged mill town was “eminently characteristic of an industrial district whose natural features have been almost entirely swept away to give place to factories, iron foundries, and collieries”. Although industrial activity declined in the late 20th century, land reclamation and residential developments have continued to alter Tyldesley’s landscape, and have encouraged renewed economic activity, particularly along Elliot Street — Tyldesley’s central commercial area and its main thoroughfare.

“The girls are doing a great job, thank god for your service. I have told a couple of friends at work about you and they will be contacting you”. – Ms Mills, Tyldesley.

“I have been a customer of Houseproud Cleaning for the last 3 years. I find the company and cleaners very professional in all aspects of their work. All staff carry I.D. badges which in this day and age is essential. They are dressed immaculately in Houseproud uniforms and are well trained in their duties. They are courteous, honest, reliable and nothing is too much trouble whatever you ask of them. I have never had need to complain and am sure this will be ongoing. I will be continuing with their valued service which without doubt is ‘First Class’”. – A very satisfied R. Bough , Tyldesley.
