Bolton Low Houses is a small village in Cumberland, along the old Roman road from Luguuallium to Alauna, now the A595 from Carlisle to Maryport, at a bridge on the River Waver. The village is three miles south of Wigton.

There is a coal mining area to the east between Oughterside, [1][2] Allhallows Colliery and Bolton No.2 Pit.[3]

In 1831, Samuel Lewis noted that there was a meeting house for dissenters in Bolton Low Houses.[4]

The village today contains a Methodist Chapel and a pub, the Oddfellows Arms.
