Bolton Methodist Mission, Knowsley Street, Bolton - Bolton

Bolton Methodist Mission was built between 1898 and 1900 by Bradshaw and Gass. The interior is centred around a large auditorium. The tower over the Knowsley Street entrance makes an important contribution to the streetscape. Grant aid under the Repair Grant for Places of Worship scheme towards repairs to the internal floors of the tower is completed repair. However, there is ongoing concern about the condition of the timber windows.
