Other Information

  • Church of All Souls Bolton was one of hundreds constructed during the Victorian evangelical revival of the 1870s and 1880s that was bankrolled by rich industrialists. In this case local mill owner, Thomas Greenhalgh, stumped up the money to provide a place of worship for those working in his mill and others in the area.
  • The idea was to provide a proper community church that could accommodate a large congregation with many of them in a single undivided space. As such the church has a single span interior without any central columns of 16 metres in width and no aisle.
  • The exterior is Longridge sandstone with a four-stage tower 36 metres tall. * The church closed in 1986, but was converted into a community centre with work starting in 2010 and it opening in 2012. Work has been carried out by the Churches Conservation Trust.
