This is the name for a new out of town complex, named after a tributary of the River Croal. The Bolton Wanderers Reebok Stadium is located here, as is a 12 screen multiplex cinema, operated by Vue. The official web site by the developers Emerson is http://www.middlebrook-bolton.co.uk. Also here are 24 hour supermarkets (Asda and Tesco), a Marks and Spencer Store (opening early 2006). An internet cafe, Cyberjungle [Note this has now ceased operating] was also located here, but closed 2002. It lies in the shadow of Horwich, between the M61 junction 6 and the Beehive roundabout.

From the car park of the retail park, the modern styled towers of the stadium dominate the skyline. Bolton Wanderers play here. There is also a museum (entrance fee payable) tracing the history of the Wanderers. There is also a book with wartime history of the team, and there is more information at http://www.wartimewanderers.com/.
