A pseudo-Egyptian obelisk near the south-east corner of the parish church, similar to one in Leigh, was probably built for Robert Vernon Atherton in 1781.. It was restored in 1867 twelve years before the church was finished. It is a Grade II listed structure..Atherton's war memorial is a cenotaph at the intersection of Leigh Road and Hamilton Street was designed by architect Arthur John Hope and constructed of Darley Dale stone.. It was unveiled in January 1922 by Private J. Roylance, a soldier blinded in action during the First World War...

Atherton is built around se7en brooks: the Shakerley Brook forms the western boundary with Tyldesley; Chanters Brook flows through the area known as "The Valley"; Knight's Brook (Bag Lane); Colliers Brook; Small Brook is the boundary with Westleigh; Westhoughton Brook forms the boundary with Daisy Hill; and Red Waters Brook..The underlying rocks are the coal measures of the Manchester Coalfield...
