  • Bolton Town Hall

Other Information

  • Bolton was one of the main textile centres for the British Empire, particularly cotton. The Town Hall contains many references to this including statue of a black child next to a cotton spinner by famous Victorian sculptor, William Calder Marshall.
  • The original building was renovated and extended in 1938 by the Bolton architects Bradshaw, Gass and Hope who were commissioned to work in an identical style to the original. As such the differences are difficult to detect unless one looks at the comparative weathering of the stone.
  • The original Albert Hall was destroyed by a fire in 1981, but the rest of the building was saved and repaired where necessary.
