Lowton is a village in Greater Manchester, part of the Metropolitan Borough of Wigan in England. The village is approximately 6 miles south of the town of Wigan and the A580 East Lancashire Road runs through the settlement.

The area is renowned for its early history of Byrom Manor, the ancestral home of the Byroms, of which John Byrom (poet and the father of the shorthand system) was part of. Historically, Lowton was a part of Lancashire. Byrom Manor has a recorded history from as early as 1212 and the family prospered for generations. Byrom Hall once has a surrounding moat. Lowton was once one of the berewicks of the Royal Manor of Newton, eventually becoming one of the members of Barony of Makerfield. 

The Hare and Hounds Pub in Lowton was built during the 1600 and once served as a holding place for local criminals awaiting trial, including murderers. In 1830 in Newton-le-Willows near to Lowton, occurred the world's first fatal passanger train crash; the train collided with the George Stephenson's Rocket locomotive during the opening of the Liverpool and Manchester. Amongst the victims of this collision included Liverpool MP William Huskisson.
