Over Hulton is now a suburb of Westhoughton within the Metropolitan Borough of Bolton, in Greater Manchester, England. It lies 3.5 miles (5.6 km) south west of Bolton town centre.

Historically it was a part of the hundred of Salford in the county of Lancashire. Until the 19th century, Over Hulton was a township in the Parish of Deane. In 1837 Over Hulton along with neighbouring townships (or civil parishes) became part of the Bolton Poor Law Union which took responsibility for the administration and funding of the Poor Law in that area. In 1898 the Daubhill area (re-directed to Bolton) of Over Hulton was added to Bolton Borough and the remainder was added to Westhoughton Urban District.
