Hall i’th’Wood estate – Our History -a 1930s Housing Estate, Bolton, United Kingdom

This website celebrates a local community in Bolton.

A group of local residents and ex-residents came together; receiving a small grant from  Bolton Council, to research the history of their estate.

They spent time in the local archives, organised community events and used social media to collate stories/make contact with ex-residents.

Monies went towards producing an exhibition which was held at Hall I’th’Wood museum, Bolton. Running from 23rd March 2019 – 30th April 2019 (note Museum opening hours Tuesday 10 am – 4 pm and Saturday 12 pm – 4 pm)

During: 23rd March – 30th April 2019 we will be loading content onto here; as so much  information was gathered it could not all form part of the exhibition.

So we have chosen  to share it here with you for the purpose of learning and maybe jogging a few of your own memories.

Regards The Research team – Susan. Linda, Kathy, Caroline, Sue and Steve, Peter and Judith , Louise and Anne.
